Pair of curlers are oldest American Olympians

BY foxsports • February 14, 2010

American curler Tracy Sachtjen doesn't need a reminder that she's the oldest U.S. Olympian in Vancouver.

Sachtjen turns 41 this week and is an alternate on the team. She posed the other day for a photo with 16-year-old freestyle aerialist Ashley Caldwell - the skier is the same age as Sachtjen's daughter.

American men's curler John Benton, the guy teammates call ``great-grandpa,'' is also a forty-something. But Sachtjen's got him beat by four months.
