Sy Perlis and the Fountain of Youth

On June 8, 2013, 91-year-old Sy Perlis broke the World Association of Benchers and Deadlifters record of 135 pounds with a bench press of 187.2 pounds.  The previous record for the 90-and-over category was set in 2005.

Please note: In the competition video he is wearing a Titan Katana bench shirt, a supportive device that can increase bench press performance significantly.  Nevertheless, Sy, who wears a pacemaker, is an amazing man and should inspire us all, young or old.

Here's an interview with Sy:
