This sprint between a 99-year-old and 92-year-old is pure tension in slow motion -

Orville Rogers and Dixon Hemphill are two incredible athletes, both of whom were born 20 years before the start of World War 2. At the 2017 Masters Indoor Track Championships they raced.

The pair were the only competitors in the 60 meter dash for athletes over the age of 90. The pair were neck-and-neck the entire race, making this surprisingly tense. Experience toppled youth in the end, as the 99-year-old Rogers beat 92-year-old Hemphill in a photo finish.

0.05 seconds — that...
