Speedy geezers

Calgarian Duff Gibson’s gold medal not only proves that he can hurl himself down an icy chute on a tea tray at higher speed than anyone else in the world, it also revived the Olympic dream for many of us. At 39, he had 4 years and 0.26 of a second on silver medalist Jeff Pain of Calgary, 2 years and 0.92 of a second on bronze medalist Gregor Staehli of Switerland, and 8 years and 1.12 seconds on fourth place finisher Paul Boehm of Calgary. In fact, you have to go all the way down to seventh place before finding a youngster still in his twenties. Hurrah, geezers!
