[5:56:47 PM]  This is a story that absolutely, positively, 100%proves the adage that you're never too old. How about a usa TRACK and field CHAMPIONSHIP where competitors are as old as 100. Jim Armstrong shows us, it's happening all weekend right here in Boston. Reporter: it's the usa MASTERS INDOOR TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP. I'm 100 years old. Reporter: Leland is a member of the socal TRACK club in San Diego competing in four events. Today it was the men's weight throw. A little wobbly, but he did it. It keeps me alive. Reporter: 920 athletes are competing this weekend from ages 30 to 100. Reporter: my goal is to get everybody in shape in America that's over 50 years of age. We have 47 world champions here to regular everyday Joe and maries. Reporter: they are competing in a full range of INDOOR TRACK events. It's the competition. It's the only sport, I feel, that you have that head-to-head competition. For so long into your age groups. Reporter: next week, many of these jumpers, vaulters, and runners go to the world MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIP in budapest. You always want to get to the next age group. Once you get to 100, that's the one you want to be in. Jim Armstrong, wbz news. You can watch all of the action at the MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIP tomorrow and Sunday at the reggie Lewis TRACK.
