IDEA Member Takes Gold at Senior Games
IDEA member John Platero, director of education for the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers, won four medals (three gold, one silver) at the California Senior Games in June in Pasadena. In a bid to prove that age is no hindrance, Platero took first place in the men’s 50–54 group for the 5K, 10K and 20K cycling events, and silver for the 40K. He went on to compete in the 2009 Summer National Senior Games in Palo Alto, California, in August, taking first place in both the 20K and 40K cycling competitions.
