TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A 73-year-old man celebrated his birthday Tuesday morning by swimming 73 laps across the pool at the Tupelo Aquatic Center.
Tom Murry says he swims every day.
"Well, only in the last few years," he said. "Once, my treadmill broke, and I decided that was one of the best days of my life. And I decided it was time to get back in the water. Less wear and tear on the joints."
He also works part-time as a lifeguard at the Tupelo Aquatic Center.
