Masters athletes "have become a topic of fascination for researchers in the past decade, because they're viewed as "exemplars of successful aging." And it's not just because they get lots of exercise: "Lifelong competitors" also tend to have high psychological, cognitive and social functioning, prompting researchers to wonder what makes them tick – and whether the rest of us should be emulating them."
