84-Year-Old Former Olympic Gymnast Credits Gym Routine With Keeping Her Young
"It’s so important when you get older to maintain that independence and mobility," Marjorie Carter said.
Marjorie Carter may be 84 years old, but that doesn't stop her from showing off some serious flexibility.
"It’s so important when you get older to maintain that independence and mobility," Carter told SWNS. "As they say, 'Use it or you lose it.'"
Carter was part of Great Britain's Olympic women's squad. She attended the 1952 and 1960 games and then went on to coach the sport for 25 years.
She still goes to the gym to work out three times a week.
"People in the gym always say, 'You inspire me so much,' which puts a huge smile on my face and keeps me motivated," Carter said.
"It definitely helps keep me young."
