84-year-old Shi Yide is practicing for the 20th Asia Masters Athletics Championships at Liuzhou City Stadium. More than 1,900 master athletes from 20 countries and regions will gather in Rugao, east China’s Jiangsu Province to display their skills. Shi suffered from tuberculosis in the 1990s after retirement, and started running to strengthen his pulmonary functions. In 2006, Shi began attending national competitions and won many awards. Shi Yide said, "Humanity lies in movement. Life lies in the movement. So we should go outside and it’s better than staying at home.” This year’s competition might be Shi’s last, due to age restrictions. He hopes to perform well and end his sporting career on a high note.

See how vanity changed
See how vanity changed this 97-year-old's attitude to strength and fitness. He is striving to change perceptions of ageing and the elderly. Charles Eugster feels society has put an expiry date on the elderly, and sees being old as an inexorable path to inactivity and physical decline. But it doesn’t need to be that way. Indeed, as we live longer, our pension deficits get bigger and our health services struggle to cope, we must change.
A good motivation, a good example for all generations. This man deserves respect forever.
"Society has stamped us with an expiry date. This is ridiculous" Well said Sir. Kick ass in the afterlife my friend.
i think everyone will die anyway but the idea of living a quality healthy life until your last breath is the point here
GOD BLESS YOU IN JESUS NAME
2 days before he died!
Kila Raipur Festival or
Kila Raipur Festival or Rural Olympics is a very popular annual sports meet. An interesting part of the event is that all participants are given enough time to show off their ability. This sports event is so exciting whether it is a tractor race or dog race, it is special for all. Much of the allure of the Rural Olympics lies in the traditional forms of contest and in the ability to compete in events where no specific skills are required. This particular event involves many people who go through a circular set of rods and test their strengths over the other.
According to the Rural Olympics website:
It was in 1933. Philanthropist Inder Singh Grewal visualised an annual recreational meet where farmers from areas surrounding Kila Raipur could get together and test their corporal endurance. The idea gave birth to Kila Raipur Sports, the undisputed "Rural Olympics".In over six decades the festival has grown from a toddler to a prancing, energetic youthful organisation. This pioneer rural sports festival has become an annual international event, which is normally held in the first weekend of February. A dynamic team of organisers -- Grewal Sports Association -- has taken yet again another pioneering step of giving rural women a break in sports.
Today this festival of the rustics attracts more than 4,000 sportsmen and women, both of recognised and traditional sports. The three-day festival is witnessed by more than a million people. Besides, several million others watch it on television, read about it in newspapers and magazines.Whether you are in Punjab or in Toronto or in Southall, you will know the latest about Kila Raipur Sports. Its participants come from all over the globe. Since it takes several months for the immigrants in England, Canada or the USA to select, train and send their Kabbadi and Tug of War teams to this festival which of late has become a truly international, talks about destination KILA RAIPUR start much early.
When Mr. Inder Singh Grewal and subsequently Grewal Sports Association visualised the Games, the solitary aim was, "healthy mind in a healthy body", the watchword has been "excellence", in accordance with the Olympic motto of "CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS". Besides, it was to provide a platform where boys and girls, men and even veterans could come and exhibit their acumen not only in recognised sporting events but also in traditional rural sports.So it has been always the best. Those who have been watching this festival grow from year to year can vouch that they have seen hundreds of Olympians and internationals in action on the bald but even playfields of perhaps the biggest Rural Sports Stadium in the country.
For the Grewal Sports Association, it is not only the annual Rural Olympics but also sports promotion which gets its paramount attention. The Association sponsors and runs a hockey academy for schoolboys. At present 150 budding hockey stars are training at the Academy on a regular basis -- 125 of them are day boarders and 25 are boarders.
The Association plans to extend the stadium further, construct a new modern hostel for the Academy, start another academy in track and field and lay a synthetic surface for hockey. Kila Raipur and surrounding villages have made a matchless contribution to the national mainstream of sports in almost all major recognised sports.
