Age of Champions Film Producer at The Phoebe Institute on Aging Fall Conference

Keith Ochwat, producer of the Age of Champions, was the keynote of the Phoebe Institute on Aging Fall conference. He gave updates on the seniors who were featured in the film and behind the scenes stories from the making of Age of Champions. Ochwat, like many, was personally interested in what allowed the senior athletes to live and thrive as they aged.

Ochwat’s opinion is that successful aging could not be attributed only to genes, diet, exercise, attitude, or the abstention from alcohol or cigarettes. The common thread behind their success was that each athlete had a goal. Having something like the Senior Olympics to look forward to allowed them to focus on a mission and ultimately to achieve the goal at hand.
