Big Bear man to celebrate 65th birthday doing 40 sports in 24 hours

BIG BEAR, Calif. (KABC) -- A man from Big Bear is celebrating his 65th birthday in a rather unconventional way. He will attempt to finish 40 sporting events in various Southern California locations, all within a 24-hour span.

The six water events that George Crezee is attempting at Big Bear Lake will perhaps be his biggest challenge because he is dealing with chilling winds and frigid water temperatures.

His quest will take him from the mountains to the desert to the lakes and then the beaches of Southern California.
