      AGE OF CHAMPIONS is an award-winning documentary following five competitors who spring, leap, and swim for the gold at the National Senior Olympics. Meet 100-year-old tennis champion Roger Gentilhomme, 86-year-old pole vaulter Adolf Hoffman, and The Tigerettes-- a group of rough-and-tumble basketball-playing Grandmas—as they triumph over the limitations of age and inspire others to do the same. Called “infectiously inspiring” by the Washington Post, AGE OF CHAMPIONS is a light-hearted take on growing older, and a powerful story worth sharing.
