Record Breaking First Day of Competition

The first NSGA record has been broken. We are proud to announce that Bruce Patterson of Ohio has broken the record for Men’s Triple Jump in the 60-64 division with an outstanding 10.11m (33’2”).The previous record was set back in 2007 at 10.10m. Congratulations Bruce! We look forward to more record breaking performances throughout the Games.

Yesterday, 100-year-old bowler Harry Pepper won the gold medal in Men's singles bowling, blowing away the competition. Originally from Rhode Island, Pepper has called Houston home since childhood. If Pepper looks familiar it may be because he served as one of the cauldron lighters during the Flame Arrival ceremony held last Thursday evening. Joining him in igniting
the flame was Kay Glynn. Yesterday, she won gold in hammer throw and triple jump. Glynn will continue competing in 100m, 200m, 400m, discus, high jump, long jump, shot put, triple jump, javelin and pole vault over the course of the Games.
