A former Olympic gymnast proves age is no barrier as she continues to perform gravity-defying routines and can even do the SPLITS – aged 84. Marjorie Carter, a grandmother-of-five, competed for Great Britain at the 1952 and 1960 Games in Helsinki and Rome before going on to coach the sport. Amazingly, the octogenarian refuses to let old age slow her down and can still perform cartwheels, stand on her head and aims to be still doing the splits when she’s a 100. Mother-of-two Marjorie has maintained her Olympian training standards and trains three times a week in the gym – regularly starting her workouts at 6am.
