Charles Osgood host of Sunday Morning on August 7, 2016

Charles Osgood hosted Sunday Morning on August 7, 2016. Included in the headlines were Michael Phelps, the death of Pete Fountain, and a new Lucille Ball statue.

The cover story was by Lee Cowan, titled --Senior athletes: Going the distance -- One Orville Rogers was interviewed:

"To this day, Lee, I'm the only man in the world who's run a 10-minute mile after age 90," he said. "And I'm the only man in the world who has run a 15-minute mile after age 95. I'm bragging, aren't I?"

There was discussion with Loretta DiPietro, professor and chair of the Exercise and Nutrition Department at George Washington University. A senior named Dixon Hemphill was given a VO2 Max test, to determine how efficiently oxygen was being used by his body.

The almanac noted August 7 is "Purple Heart Appreciation Day," related to an event on August 7, 1782.

A story on Andrew Lloyd Webber was recycled from Dec. 13, 2015.
