118 years old: The world’s oldest person will carry the Olympic torch
VK: Meet the world’s oldest person, Ken Tanaka. She will carry the Olympic torch to Japan in May this year in a wheelchair.
There is no older person in the world at the moment and he has seen many wars, several epidemics and twice the incidence of cancer. Women in Fukuoka drink soft drinks daily and enjoy math games.
Her neighborhood is called Sheim, and when the Olympic torch passes by, she picks it up in a wheelchair 100 meters away. The torch will then be passed to another player. For this important occasion, he has been given new jogging shoes which his family gave him as a gift on his birthday in January.
She told reporters that she had always been busy. His message to all people is that old age is not a barrier.
Although 106-year-old Ida Gamnik of Brazil also held the torch at the 2016 Rio Winter Games, Ken Tanaka has broken the record and is now 118 years old.
