They Day the Earth Shook, Sprinter Wins Sr. Olympic Gold at 74

          A damaged knee and he was out.

          Blasting out of the starting blocks and thundering down the track Ray Beaufait, 74, rocketed his way to many spring victories that would have left men half is age gasping for air and choking on his dust.

          More than a year ago, Ray emerged from an illness that left him weak but determined that it was time to get in shape. At Arrowhead Health Centers he underwent further treatment to enable his knees to cooperate as he developed his softball skills and sprinting speed. A year later he scored Arizona Senior Olympics sprinting gold.
