"Defying his 85 years as well as gravity, Carol Johnston practices pole vaulting in Walnut, California. Still competitive, he holds the world record—7'6" [2.3 meters]—for his age. He and 34 million others over 65 in the United States are leading a revolution, remaining vigorous and living longer than any previous generation. While science explores how to add even more healthy years to the human life span, a graying society faces inevitable changes in attitude and lifestyle."

—From "Aging—New Answers to Old Questions," November 1997, National Geographic
