Editor Pick 2 Inspirational-Heros

The women of the San Diego Splash basketball team are featured in a new ESPNW video special. But what’s so special about this basketball team?

For starters, this team includes athletes only age 80 and above. Two members of the squad are actually over 90.

“If you can stand up and move your legs, you’re welcome,” explains 87-year-old Marge Carl in the clip.

The ladies play as part of the San Diego Senior Women’s Basketball Association for those 50 years or older. Their games last 30 minutes and are played three-on-three and on the half court.
These ladies prove that age is nothing but a number.

“We play to win. Absolutely,” says 91-year-old Meg Skinner.
