Y-Time: Ford's Swimming Story

Tools

Story Updated: Sep 30, 2013

Shortly after he retired, Ford was suffering from back pain and doctors told him swimming would help.

He's now 88 and has been swimming at the Watertown YMCA for 29 years and no longer has back pain.
 
That wasn't his first time swimming at the Y, though. He was part of a swimming program in 1933, when he was 8 years old.
