Edgar Larson won nine gold medals and set four swimming records at one championship -- this was after a tear in his colon, a brush with death and all at the age of 85.

Larson is one of the world's top over 85 masters swimmers and was determined to make it to the World Senior Games despite his major medical problems two years ago.

He proves to people everywhere that recovering from a major surgery is possible and going back to the way life used to be is as well.
