Margrit Sprecher „Oma läuft Weltrekord“
Higher, faster, older: senior citizens venture into competitive sports. Instead of fading into the background, many older people rebel against the role society imposes on them. They immerse themselves into the world of sports competitions and train relentlessly to reach their goal of winning gold at international championships. Margrit Sprecher, the grande dame of Swiss journalism, presents her moving article on senior athletes as part of the sport week in Recklinghausen.
