He may be 86 years old, but weightlifting champion Marcel Perron is proving that age really is just a number
This weekend, the octogenarian retained his title at a weightlifting competition that took place in Montreal in Canada, Perron’s home town. He took home the gold despite having suffered a heart attack and a stroke last year.
Perron has been enjoying the sport of weightlifting since the 1960s and believes it is one of the keys to his long and healthy life.
