Photo: JASON OXENHAM By SCOTT MORGAN She might be 92 years old, but there s no stopping cancer sur- vivor Kath Johnstone. The Sandringham resident was awarded a $15,000 AMP scholarship earlier this month after winning nine medals in the pool at the World Masters Games in Sydney a year ago. The money will help Kath get to the Australian Masters Games in Perth next April, despite being diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. I ve got to be overseas. There s no competition in New Zealand. I need competition to keep me going. Kath is also set to travel to the Pan Pacific Masters Games on the Gold Coast this week. She says the cancer scare hasn t stopped her from com- peting. My health is very good. I ve got to keep having MRIs every so often. She says it was a shock to win the scholarship. It was more than a sur- prise. I can t see how they would possibly have picked me. Despite her success in vari- ous individual and relay events, including the 1500-metre freestyle, Kath says there s more to competing than just winning medals. I m swimming to keep myself well. If I just keep going I will keep well in old age. Out of the pool Kath has had many other adventures in the later stages of her life. I told myself I m going to do something interesting every year of my life. I ve been skydiving, whitewater rafting and caving in the Waitomo Caves. AMP spokeswoman Veron- ica Ruddenklau says Kath stood out from the other applicants, with her passion for swimming and belief that you can do anything if you commit to it. Kath was a perfect example of a Kiwi doing great things. Fourteen scholarships ranging from $10,000 to $30,000 were handed out at the awards dinner last month.
