SPORTS FEATURE: Al Paulsen, Senior Olympian
Al Paulsen, 54, of Midland lands into the sand pit after taking his first long jump in more than 30 years Saturday at Midland High School in his first effort to begin training for the Senior Olympics, which start in one month. He jumped 14 feet, 5 inches on his first attempt. "That's not bad, no, but it's frightening to think I have to go more than 16 feet."
I will be following Al through his training and performance next month at the Senior Olympics. I am glad I came across him and his story.
