Many people give up the hopes of playing their favorite sport when they hit their late years, but this Huntsman Senior Games participant is the exception.

At 91, Mickey Pitti keeps impressing and inspiring participants and audience members during this year’s Huntsman World Senior Games. Pitti started playing volleyball in her fifties, and hasn’t stopped ever since. She was awarded the gold medal for the oldest volleyball participant at the Senior Games last year and maintains the title. With her team, the Hemet Hot Flashes, she plays in more than a handful of volleyball competitions regularly around the nation.

SUN News reporter Stephanie Moreno brings us the story of this inspirational role model.
