This just may be the sweetest and most heartwarming aging athletes photography series you're likely to ever see. Still in shape and surprisingly powerful, these senior track and field athletes are still competing in their sport of choice -- and they are going for the gold.

Captured by photographer Angela Jimenez, the ‘Racing Age’ photo series shows that age and a wrinkled body can't stop human determination. Jimenez's aging athletes photography series documents senior track and field athletes in their "peak moments of action."

"How high or far can you jump? The records in each age group are like a record of what aging bodies can do. We are living longer and getting stronger, faster. I wanted to get those peak moments," says Jimenez.
