Way to go grandma! 81-year-old woman does 100 push-ups in five minutes

Beijing, Oct 15:  An 81-year-old Chinese woman does 100 push-ups daily in just five minutes. Li Guochuan from Fujian province has gained a reputation for her passion and skills in sports, Xinhua reported.

She celebrated her 81st birthday in July and still practices basketball and performs push-ups and sit-ups. She even created an exercise she calls the "roly-poly roll". Sitting on the ground with feet and hands clutched, Li rolls around 100 times everyday at home.

She believes this exercise is good for her muscles and bones. "I enjoy doing sports. Exercising makes me happy," Li said.

Once a farmer in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Li moved to Fujian at the age of 56. When she was 68 years old, Li realised that she wanted to start her "sports career".  "I feel really good. I have no illness. I am a light and fast walker. People won't believe my age if they only look at they way I walk and listen to my voice," she said.

To pass on her passion, Li has now volunteered to teach anyone interested.
