Topic - Who is the fittest 50 year old on the planet?

Minneconjou Sioux - on 24 Feb 2013

And I'm talking about physical fitness not looks.

This question comes from something Lance Armstrong said a little bit before he was outted and while he was still under investigation. He was aiming for triathlon races at the time. It was something along the lines of "I just want to concentrate on becoming the fittest 40yr old on the planet".

And it got me thinking that this wasn't a bad thing to aspire to. So clearly I'm thinking sans drugs here but I'm sure someone will miss this and bring it up.

I'm 49 so my aspirations would be to be the fittest 50 yr old. In truth I know I am a very long way off but if I was to go for this what or who would be the target?

Clearly again this is hugely subjective but that in itself is part of the challenge. Is sprint fit the same as marathon fit? Is swimming fit the same as cycling fit?

So what are your thoughts?
