Revel Nevada Resident and Ex- Air Force Veteran wins Silver in National Senior Games
The Wolff Company celebrates the achievement of senior living community resident
Scottsdale, AZ, and Henderson, NV (June 19, 2019) – The Wolff Company, a Scottsdale-based private equity firm and multifamily developer, is celebrating Ron Williams, an 85-year-old resident at Revel Nevada who recently won a silver medal in the National Senior Games in Albuquerque, NM. Williams won silver in the racquetball competition, following his gold medal win at the 2018 Nevada Senior Games to qualify.
The National Senior Games is a biennial competition for men and women 50 and over, featuring 20 different sports, such as racquetball, softball, swimming and tennis. It remains the largest multi-event sports competition in the world for seniors. This year’s event runs June 14-25, 2019.
Williams has been playing racquetball for over 40 years, competing out of his love for the game.
“I enjoy racquetball and I enjoy competition,” said Williams. “Going to the Nationals is really no big thing. I do it for myself, not to impress anyone.”
To train for the event, Williams exercised five times per week, participating in activities such as running, weightlifting, tai chi and swimming. He trains at the Revel Nevada fitness center and plays racquetball with a group of players at various locations throughout Henderson.
“Ron is an inspiration to the rest of our residents,” said Luis Pineda, Executive Director at Revel Nevada. “He embodies the essence of what we aim for in a Revel resident. Ron is constantly working to meet his goals and maintains an active lifestyle to do so.”
Williams has been a high achiever most of his life. Before moving to Revel Nevada, he spent 22 years in the Air Force, setting 8 world altitude and time-to-climb world records with U-2C planes in the late 1980s. Williams has even been to the National Senior Games for racquetball once before. He competed in the 2013 National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio.
Ahead of the tournament, Williams said that he would keep training for the next tournament if he didn’t win. Look forward to seeing Williams compete in the next National Senior Games in 2021.
