102-year-old man runs 100 metre race in jaw-dropping video

The video of a man said to be 102 years has gone viral garnering millions of views on one platform basically because this centenarian can be seen contesting in a 100 metre race on a track.

Who runs at 102 years? Apparently it is an Asian man who even as fragile as he is, did not let the wages of age get the better of him.

YEN.com.gh sighted the video of the Asian man on Facebook courtesy Greatest Highlights and at the time of going to press, the video had garnered over 10 million views.

The man's name is unknown although in the video his advancement in age is clearly visible. He was contesting with other older individuals who might not have been as old as he is because they were faster.

The country of origin of the video is also currently unknown to YEN.com.gh.

The 102-year-old man did not complete the 100-metre race. Halfway through he was helped off the tracks after staggering his way to some point.

One would say it was already too much to have asked him to compete let alone complete the race.

Many who saw the video chipped in with their views.

Jay Edvabsky wrote, "You sir, are an inspiration! To know that you can do something this Awesome at 102 years old, is amazing!"

And another, Bobby Joe Bogner added: "You go man! Turns and bows to his lane in respect. Respect is one main element in life that gives you a quality of life.

I wish the younger people could learn this."
