Open Post: Hosted By The 92-Year-Old Who Broke A World Sprinting Record And Is Now “Ready To Croak”

August 4, 2019 / Posted by:

How was 92-year-old Diane Hoffman able to break multiple world sprinting records last weekend?

“I believe the good lord gave me legs! That’s it! Nothing else!”

Oh Diane! The New York Post reports that the grandmother of nine broke records for her age group in the 400-meter dash at last weekend’s USA Track and Field Championships in Boston.

While she’s happy that she’s accomplished so much despite only taking up the sport last year (!), she’s also announced that she’s ready for death’s calming embrace.

When she crossed the finish line last weekend, she told her family in a video between swigs of Gatorade, “I’m ready to croak!”

Diane says that she doesn’t consider herself a runner, she’s just super-competitive. She’s also a tennis ace, having taken up the sport at 40. She won won the gold for the U.S. in the Queens Cup in Turkey in the 75-and-older category and the Bostonian has already been inducted into the US Tennis Association’s New England Hall of Fame.

Besides “having legs,” another training secret of Diane’s is the trampoline. Watch!

Diane did express wanting to die after her latest triumph but hopefully she’ll stick around because she’s priceless.
