A 95-year-old retired dentist has set a new world record for his age group in the 200-meter indoor sprint, knocking a massive 2.4 seconds off the previous record. He’s only been running for a few years; bodybuilding and never retiring, says Charles Eugster, are the secrets to his success.

The medal-winning rower, runner, and body builder, finally took up serious bodybuilding when he was 87, having looked in the mirror and disliking what he saw…

The Swiss citizen, who speaks three languages, laments, “People have been brainwashed to think that after you’re 65, you’re finished.”

“We’re told that old age is a continuous state of decline, and that we should stop working, slow down and prepare to die,” he wrote on his celebrity Facebook Page. “I disagree.”
