The oldest Olympian
[1 minute blog]
This oldest Olympian at London 2012 is 71 years old. His name is Hiroshi Hoketsu and he's been competing at the equestrian arena in Greenwich. It turns out he's been acting as quite an inspiration to sports fans here in London, and he still hasn't completely ruled out taking part in Rio in four years time.
Oh and he first took part in the Olympics 48 years ago.
'Have a good life, enjoy yourself and do the things that make you happy.'
Which would seem to me to be pretty good advice.
