Helen Beauchamp has a lot of numbers to remember. She's 88 years old, she has 11 grandchildren, more than five world records, and she won gold medals at all five events she entered in the 2007 National Senior Games.

Not only does Beauchamp like to collect, she likes to throw, too. She's set records in hammer throw, shot put, javelin and discus events.

She talks with Growing Bolder about this past National Senior Games competition and why, at the age of 88, she still likes to compete.

    Unbelievable what Ms. Helen has accomplished.  But, it's true, you'd better start early in life.     Love, Ellen Watson

    Olie: 

    We all knew that your sister was an exceptional woman!   Seems I remember that when she got close to that "dead" bear she unloaded her side-arm to make sure it was really dead.  However, as

    I recall, after she skinned that bear, there was only one bullet hole (from the rifle) in the hide.  Great memories.  Wayland McNutt
