99-Year-old runner leaves competition in the dust

CLEVELAND, Ohio-- Thousands of athletes gathered in Cleveland Thursday for the Gay Games.

The event is famous for including athletes of all shapes and sizes.

99-year-old Ida Keeling is grabbing headlines for being a record breaking senior sprinter

Standing at 4-foot 6-inches and weighing a whopping 86 pounds, Ida may look frail, but her doctor says she is as healthy as a 20-year-old.

Ida has one piece of advice to everyone: “Do what you need to do, not what you want to do and don't leave out your daily exercise."

Next May, Ida turns 100-years-old.
