Columbia Sportswear’s “One Tough Mother” 93-year-old Gert Boyle has been awarded the prestigious ISPO Cup in Munich, Germany.

It’s in recognition of Boyle’s achievements in the world of sports.

Boyle’s son, Tim, accepted the honor on her behalf.

Gert Boyle is the first ever non-athlete to receive the ISPO Cup.

She was born in Germany and escaped the Nazi regime as a young girl.

Past recipients of the award include soccer legend Pelé, skier Jean-Claude Killy and sprinter Wilma Rudolph.
