84-year-old former Olympic gymnast still performing gravity-defying routines

2018-08-15 03:50
A former world-class athlete, who competed in the Olympics twice, is still performing gravity-defying gymnastic routines at the grand old age of 84. Age is no barrier for amazing Majorie Carter, a member of the British gymnastics squad at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, Finland, and the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy - just missing out on medals at both. The octogenarian, who went on to have an impressive coaching career, nurturing the next generation of gymnasts, still trains three times a week - hitting the gym at 6am. Credit: Associated Press
