77 year old pushup contestant

We were always taught to never judge a book by its cover. The saying definitely applies for this push-up contest participant.

According to the original poster of the video, the veteran is 77 years old, a detail that cannot go unmentioned, because this wise old man kicks some young whippersnapper ass.

The crowd watches and counts in Russian as the young hooligans drop like flies. Seriously, one of them only does like, 11 push-ups. Not that we could do many more, but the vet makes it look like a piece of cake.

Finally, everyone taps out and the contestants hug the man out of admiration and respect. The contest took place on May 9 in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, a city in which these "strong" young men may never again be able to show their faces.

Just watch him in all of his patriarchal glory:
