Bad Ass Olympians: Ian Millar

Most people envision 65-year-olds playing with their grandkids or helping their own kids renovate their homes. But competing in the Olympic Games? No one could have seen that coming. But Ian Millar did just that, and he has been doing that since 1972. The Canadian equestrian just competed in his 10th Olympic Games and since his inaugural year in those Games, he has only missed one year of competition, 1980’s boycotted Moscow Games. His Olympic run this year ended when he finished 9th in the show jumping finals but with years of experience, Millar is still bringing an old-school edge to one of the world’s oldest sports. And according to the man himself, he isn’t done yet, as he hasn’t yet closed the door on competing in the 2016 Games.

That’s bad ass.
