(ABC 6 NEWS) - As the sun rises over the Austin Y, you can be sure if you step through the doors and into the pool, you'll see Joe Smith.

"I'm just an ordinary guy...I'm not a swimmer, per say, I just get up and do my thing. I swim for a half hour. I've been coming to the Y for 20 or 30 years."

"I've been a physical person my whole life, and I just turned 90. That's all there is to it. [Swimming is] just one of those things you get into, and you just keep on doing."

You have heard the phrase, "swimming is a lifetime sport," and for Joe Smith, he's walking, swimming, proof that that's true.

"It's easy to do. All you've gotta do is do it."
