Looking Forward to the Games - George Geise
I don't have a particularly heartwarming tale to tell, but few athletes are looking forward more to the Huntsman World Senior Games than this retired Montanan.
On Oct. 10, 2012 I suffered a massive heart attack while playing softball at the Huntsman World Senior Games Tournament. Thanks to emergency help from our opponents from Ogden, Utah, and great work by the team at Intermountain Medical Center, I was able not only to survive but to make a complete recovery.
I will be playing softball, golf and will compete in the basketball shooting contest in St. George next month. I plan to visit the hospital and encourage recovering heart patients that there's plenty of hope for them, just as there was for me. George Geise, state director, Montana Senior Olympics, Inc.
