106-Year-Old Great-Great-Grandfather Breaks Zip Line World Record

By: Anuradha

What would you possibly imagine about a person who is 106-years old? It can be anything like bed resting whole day, taking the assistance of someone to all things the old person does and being deaf, blind and may be a cripple. When people go older and older, their vitality and energy are shrinking gradually and therefore, these are the common signs of that age. But a 106-year-old great grandfather from England has proved that old age is not actually what we think it to be and even people who are above hundreds can do many things than what people think of them to be capable of.

Jack Reynolds, the 106-years-old grandfather has broken the Guinness world record for the oldest person to ride a zip recently. He broke this record while celebrating his 106th birthday last week.

This is not the first time that he did something wonderful like this. Even for his last birthdays, he has done so many breath-taking things which are unbelievable for his age and therefore, he has been on the Guinness record many times. On his  104th birthday, he has been recorded as the oldest person to get a tattoo. On 105th he has ridden a roller coaster and has been recorded as the oldest person to ride a rollercoaster. 

The best thing is that he has done those things to raise money for charities and we should really be proud of him as he is risking his life to do something better for the world that we live.

His daughter Jayne said to Metro that “He just decided to use his old age to make money for charity. That’s his main motive but in the meantime, he is getting a lot of fun out of it. It has become somewhat of a tradition that on my birthday I use my new age to help raise money for worthy charities.”
