Growing up in Germany, Philippa Raschker could never imagine how far she'd go in life. 

At the recent Masters World Track and Field Championships in Italy, she walked away with 10 gold medals. 

The 61-year-old super athlete is the world champion of the 100, the 200, the long jump, the high jump, the triple jump, pole vault and the hurdles, among other events. 

Her success didn't come easily. She endured nearly a decade of injuries and surgeries and even retired from competition at one point. 

Find out what got her back into training and what she's got planned next.
