90 year old man triple jumps

What do you want to do when you're 90? Probably sit at home on your old rocking chair or sofa, read books, or sleep. But what if we told you that a 90-year-old man seems to have a different retirement plan.

At a time when most people of his age would take it easy, he is pushing his limits and is doing triple jumps like a champion. Yes, let that sink in.

In a video that has been shared on Reddit, a 90-year-old grandpa can be seen warming up on the tracks for a triple jump. He then makes a run for it and completes the jump in style. After falling on the ground, he gets up, dusting himself, and walks off like it's no big deal.

Users on Reddit have praised the man's fitness even at the age of 90. "If I can still walk by the time I'm 90, I'll be happy," said a user. While a lot of people say that they would be happy if they are alive at 90, others feel that a proper balanced diet and exercise are the secrets to the man's fitness.
