Humana Honors Nation’s “Game Changing” Athletes Competing At 2013 National Senior Games

Pole vaulting, clearing hurdles, swimming 500 meters and captaining a softball team are just a few examples of what a group of age-50-and-over athletes are doing this summer. Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), presenting sponsor of the 2013 National Senior Games, is pleased to announce its “Humana Game Changers” program, recognizing Humana athletes who are competing in the National Senior Games in Cleveland from July 19 to August 1, and who serve as inspiring figures for all Americans to get active.

The Humana Game Changers exemplify lifelong well-being through their spirit of determination, personal strength and dedication to their sports. These athletes come from across the country and participate in various sports, including track and field, tennis, swimming and softball. Each Humana Game Changer demonstrates how regular physical activity positively impacts overall health and serves as an example to people of all ages that it’s never too late – or too early – to pursue a healthy lifestyle.

Among the Humana Game Changers is 79-year-old Flo Meiler, of Shelburne, Vt., who will be competing in tennis and various track-and-field events, including her favorite event – pole vault.

“I didn’t pick up pole vaulting and other track and field events until I was in my 60s,” said Meiler, who has been competing in the National Senior Games since the 1990s. “I quickly found that I not only enjoyed competing, but also was pretty good for my age. I’ve loved competing ever since and want other seniors to know that anybody, at any age, can try something new to improve their health.”

A video of Flo preparing for the pole vault competition can been seen at http://youtu.be/GNgGK5QMDgM.

Leading by example, the Humana Game Changers are sharing their stories with the nation to encourage all Americans to take small steps that will lead to becoming healthier. Their stories inspire individuals to get off the couch and try a new sport or fun activity.
