90-year-old woman from BC to compete in Masters Games

Noel Marrow is returning to Sydney Australia to revisit her gold-winning race at the 1938 British Empire Games in Sydney. At a spry age of 90, Marrow is competing at the 2009 Masters Games, set for October 10 in Sydney, Australia. Her daughter says that her mom, who is hard of hearing, just couldn’t pass up the chance to revisit the city where she enjoyed her peak performances.
