49-Year-Old Phyllis Reffo Walks on to Pepperdine Swim Team

Phyllis Reffo has walked onto the Pepperdine swimming and diving team at the age of 49, becoming the latest athlete to prove that age cannot hold someone back. Reffo says she began swimming six years ago to maintain her fitness after undergoing major knee surgery. She was noticed by the swim coach at Santa Monica College, who invited her to begin practicing with the team. Reffo ended up swimming for SMC for two years.

I am pretty sure any of us could play second base for the Astros this year - even one of the bums around Bourbon Street!!

BUT - Damn she looks good for being 49 years old.

Oh yeah - 2000 posts baby!!
