Ever wonder how your Grandpa would compare with an Olympian at their own sport?



Well, some scientists did, and they set up an experiment with seniors doing the same activities as Olympians and then measured the difference between the Olympian's record and the centenarian's. Specifically, Usain Bolt, who ran the 100-metre in 9.58 seconds...



...with, say, Donald Pellman, a competitor in the 100 to 104 age-group, who did the same event in 26.99 seconds, which was only a 64.5 percent decrease in performance compared with Bolt.

The centenarian athlete who showed the lowest percent decrease in performance between an Olympian and himself was Robert Marchand, a Frenchman, who holds the world record for his age group in 1-hour track cycling. He cycled only 50.6 percent slower than Bradly Wiggin's record.



After 40, our performance decreases by about 10 to 15 percent per decade usually, so you'd better start running now if you want to catch these Grandpas.

What immediately comes to mind upon reading this news is that flop of a film, 'Dirty Grandpa' starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron. This 73-year-old legend should've been the inspiration for all that madness, cause hot damn does it look like he knows how to get a rager started. Age is just a number, right?

Grandpa goes on Craigslist

I wish I could have known this wrinkly, bag of legendary bones back when he was in his early twenties. Grandpa just wants to live out the rest of his days in peace, and he'll be damned if we're going to judge him for it.- especially Craigslist people!
