Feeling unmotivated for your daily workout?

This will get you moving...at 101-year's-old, Florence Storch is a javelin thrower competing in the Canada 55-plus games this week.

She picked up the hobby 15-years ago while volunteering for the games.

No one else had signed up for the event so she put her name down.

She says her age doesn't set her apart from other athletes.
“You're not too old to compete! Because age is just a number anyway - so I don't have much fussing around about my age,” Storch said.

The games get underway Wednesday.
