Betty Brussel

Betty Brussel, at 100, is not only celebrating her birthday, but also the 3 world records she broke this year in her age group in the swimming pool: the 400-metre freestyle, the 50-metre breaststroke, and the 50-metre backstroke. Quite a coup for a woman who only began competing at 68. Betty, originally from Holland, began swimming in the canals around Amsterdam, and once she moved to Canada, swam when she could find the time. But it’s now that Betty is truly fully committed to swimming, winning medal after medal, and thoroughly enjoying training with her competitive swim team. Congratulations, Betty!
