Elderly veteran beats young opponents in push-up contest (VIDEO)

RUSSIA - If you're betting on a push-up contest, is your money on an elderly veteran or one of the younger and more athletic-looking men? 

In a video posted on YouTube by user “Egor KO”, a 77-year-old veteran in full uniform is seen competing in a push-up contest with at least nine others, and he’s beating them.

When the crowd counted to 20 in Russian, some of the young contestants gave up but the veteran kept going.

After doing 37 push-ups, the veteran is seen standing up and cheerfully shaking hands and hugging his younger opponents who gathered around him.

Age really is just a number when it comes to this strong military warrior.
