Navor Roybal credits swimming for his continued ability to walk.

The 78-year-old nearly lifelong Las Vegas resident swims 20 laps seven days a week at the New Mexico Highlands University Natatorium. He’s been doing it for more than 30 years despite having a Pacemaker after suffering a heart attack in his early 60s.
