Bill Guilfoid is his name, and at 93 years years old he participated at the 2016 US table tennis Olympic trials. This Kansas native did not let age get in the way of his dreams of becoming an Olympian. He started playing table tennis at age 13 and has not stopped since. "If I make it, I would be the oldest Olympian in history" he told KMBC 9 during an interview.
"It’s quick, every part of your body is moving and it’s really great"
Bill has participated in both the 2012 and 2016 US Olympic trials but was not successful in making the team. We doubt nothing can stop Bill for trying again in 2020 if health permits. His story has been inspirational to all of us. Thanks Bill for showing us the way!
