After a long and successful career as a computer programmer, Ronald Whittemore has dedicated his years in retirement to compete as a Senior Olympian. Since 1995, he has garnered a number of medals in the National Senior Games and the Senior Olympics, including for the long jump, the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and other track and field events. In addition to these achievements, Mr. Whittemore has been an inspiration to others. Four months after having a heart attack in 2013, he set the record for his age group (70 to 79), and again in 2015, 2017 and 2019. His accomplishments have been highlighted in The Eagle Times and Valley News. Mr. Whittemore also served in the United States Air Force from 1961 to 1965 and the United States Navy from 1956 to 1960. For more than 30 years, he has competed in 5K and 10K road races, often winning in his age division. He holds the record in Claremont for the most consecutive days gone running, and the second-longest in New Hampshire from the United States Running Streak Association.
In a sit-down interview with Star Jones, Mr. Whittemore proves that age is just a number.
For Mr. Whittemore, excelling in his field as a computer program analyst for decades hasn’t been enough—and so for the last 25 years, he has dedicated himself to going the extra mile and competing in the Senior Olympics.
In all of his endeavors, Mr. Whittemore has earned the merit of being an Industry Leader.
Upon receiving the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, Mr. Whittemore was feature in the Wall Street Journal.
