Weird World: Brit grandfather is the fastest 84-year-old in the world

A grandfather from Leeds has been named the fastest 84-year-old in the world.

Tony Bowman represented Team GB at the European Masters in Italy last month and came away with three medals as he won gold for hurdles, silver in the 400m relay and bronze in the decathlon.

He said: “It is the younger athletes that are beating me. There is no 84-year-old faster than me in the UK – no, the world.”

Tony broke 11 British athletics records when he first entered the 80-84 age category, a feat made even more remarkable by the fact that he survived two heart attacks in his 70s.

According to a report in The Mirror, Tony still loves taking part even though he had two heart attacks in his 70s and he had stents fitted after heart surgery and has since been treated for abnormal heart rhythm. He trains every other day, dances and plays hockey and he recently cut down on alcohol and chocolate.

He added: “I can’t let my heart get in the way of my training. When I am sprinting I have to give it my absolute all, my heart is the last thing on my mind.”
