2019 National Senior Games presented by Humana Boasts Record-High Athlete Attendance
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - New Mexico has 13,712 reasons to be excited this summer.

That’s the number of athletes age 50 and over who will compete in 20 medal sports at the 2019 National Senior Games presented by Humana taking place in Albuquerque June 14-25. This represents an all-time high participation in the 32-year history of The Games, exceeding its past record of 12,000 athletes tallied in 2007 by 14%. Even before this increase, the Olympic-style event was the largest multisport event in the world for seniors.

One of the Games marquee participants, Julia “Hurricane” Hawkins, the 103-year-old world record holder in the 100-meter dash, who set the mark for her age group (a group of one for now) at the National Senior Games in 2017. Her time was 39.62 seconds.

“She’s back now,” said NSGA CEO Marc Riker. “… But she has competition. There is another 100-year-old woman in the race. It will be a showdown you don’t want to miss Tuesday at 9:15 a.m. Out at the track at University of New Mexico.”
