This week, we talk to 75 year-old DeEtte Sauer, a Houston based wife, mother, grandmother AND nationally ranked swimmer. She has won a total of 57 national medals including golds at both Masters National Championships and National Senior Olympics with a ranking in the U. S. top ten in 98 events and several world top ten rankings. She's also a spokesperson for the National Senior Olympics and a member of the Texas Senior Athletes Hall of Fame. DeEtte talks about how she became a late in life athlete after years of sedentary living, and how swimming has brought her more than the thrill of competition - it has literally saved her life.
