Gus Diezemann (left) and Dick Buckley, who live at Linden Ponds, took this year s Quincy Senior Olympics by storm, winning gold medals in the half-, one-, and three-mile walks and in the javelin, shot put, broad jump, and softball throw events. The Quincy Senior Olympics welcomes participants 55 years old and over to compete. Diezemann also won silver medals in the basketball throw and horseshoe pitching. Buckley took home three more gold medals in swimming events and another in golf putting, bringing his total to 11. He plans to give the medals to his four great-grandchildren at their family reunion this summer in Virginia Beach.
