81 year old Elvira Montes didn't just complete the annual Flotrack Beer Mile, she dominated it. The grandmother of three completed her beer mile, which requires runners to chug a 12 oz beer every quarter mile, in 20 minutes and 23 seconds, beating her 47 year old daughter by 50 seconds. 

Montes was happy to finish, but wants to up her chug speed in order to try to beat her time next year: "I should have been a little faster. I tried to drink the first one really fast but I couldn’t. The second one went down really smooth; the third, even better. The fourth was alright."

But the coolest thing about Montes? She doesn't even like beer. This badass grandma prefers scotch. Cheers to you Elvira Montes, and congrats on a great finish time. I know I couldn't beat it.

Misao Okawa is a young, 117 years old. She’s also world’s oldest person.

Okawa celebrated her birthday a day early with family, and when asked about her long life she had a very simple, yet poignant response.

“It seemed rather short,” she said.

Okawa has said in the past that the secret to her long life has been eating sushi and regularly getting 8 hours of sleep, according to Guinness World Records.

Okawa was born on March 5, 1898, and she officially claimed the Guinness record title in June 2013 after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died at 116.
