In his eighth appearance in the National Senior Games, also known as the Senior Olympics, Richard Harrison took the gold medal in the hammer throw, and, in doing so, set a record.

Harrison, a 1950 graduate of New Salisbury High School who now resides in Woodway, Wash., set the record in the 80- to 84-year-old division.

Along with the gold in the hammer, Harrison took the silver medal in the discus and a bronze medal in the javelin.

The 2013 National Senior Games took place in Cleveland, where approximately 13,000 senior athletes competed in 19 different sports.

The next Senior Games will be played in 2015 in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Most states will hold qualifying games during 2014.
