The National Senior Games is an Olympic-style event for seniors, and Flo Meiler is the sport's Jackie Joyner-Kersee.

Meiler listed for us the events in which she competes: "The hundred-meter; the 200-meter; the shot; the discus; the high jump; the long jump; the triple-jump; the hammer; the pole vault."

Yes, she said, "pole vault."

Meiler is 79 years old, and has competed in the senior games a dozen times, and will again later this month.
