Age is not an excuse for being sedentary! Elena Pagu shares her inspiring story of how she is still winning Marching World Championships at over 90 years old. Elena Pagu will be inspiring us at TEDxEroilor Challenging Tomorrow!
A world Champion at 90 years old, Elena Pagu discovered athletics when she was 56 after she retired from work. When she was eighty she started to participate in national and then in international championships for veteran athletes. The outcome?
4 times a Balkan Champion, 5 times European Champion and 9 times a World Champion!
Future championships may be in her mind and -why not- improving her existing records.
At TEDxEroilor, Elena Pagu will speak about humans’ eternal nature to always be in search of new boundaries to cross. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
