What Makes Olga Run?
Living Longer, Happier Lives
with Bruce Grierson

Hosted by the Ottawa Citizen's Mark Sutcliffe
"I am nuts about this book and about Olga. But the real kick was accompanying Bruce Grierson—a very good writer—as he took a smart, deep look into the new science of aging— and not aging—at the high end.
— Chris Crowley, co-author of the bestselling Younger Next Year books.

Part science, part journey into the untapped potential of the human spirit, join Bruce Grierson , five-time Canadian National Magazine Award-winning feature writer for the remarkable story of a 94-year-old track and field champion (not retired). 

     

Olga Kotelko is most certainly a genetic outlier, one of those rare, blessed people whose bodies resist the degradations of age. More remarkably, she's not alone; there are men and women all over the world competing at ages at which most of us will be lucky even to be alive. But her secret, and theirs, isn't just the luck of the gene pool. It's in the stories of how they exploit their genetic good fortune where the lessons for the rest of us may be found.
