At 100, Fred Winter is still a spring chicken -- or at least he's feeling like it. The centenarian and World War II veteran broke a record at the National Senior Games in Minnesota on Thursday. The games are the largest multi-sport competition in the world for people over the age of 50 and Winter became the oldest person to ever run the 100-meter dash at the event. And his time wasn't bad either, clocking in at just over 42 seconds.
Of course, we're not surprised. The Michigan centenarian took home three golds at the State Games of Michigan just last month. Not too shabby.
Winter is said to still do 100 push-ups every day and his wife told The Huffington Post last month that he takes his fitness very seriously. Darlene Winter said that Fred exercises regularly and eats healthily -- especially loving blueberries and salmon.
Way to go, Fred!
