90-Year-old competes in swim meet

INDIANAPOLIS -- A swimmer just keeps swimming even after he celebrated his 90th birthday.

Jurgen Schmidt is 90-years-old and is competing this week at the IU Masters Swimming Spring Nationals happening in Indy through Sunday.

He will swim 1,650 yards or 66 laps.

"I think I'm a very competitive person," said Schmidt. "In the business world, I was competitive. In the Navy, I was competitive. I like to compete to see how I stack up."

Schmidt competes in 20 meets every year.
