How old do you think you will be when you stop doing handstands?
Bruce Ives, an 82-year-old British Columbia man, has just set a new world record for the oldest man to perform a headstand.
Ives has been doing gymnastics since he was 15 years old and started a tradition of doing a headstand every year to celebrate his birthday about 20 years ago.
He said that “In my 60s, when my grandchildren were around in my lawn in the summertime, I just gave it a shot to get them involved in gymnastics as well.”
Ives attempted a bonus headstand on Aug. 7 2022. He was successful, and he has now been awarded the record at the age of 82 years and 43 days.
