Su Pengxue of Bei­jing turned 90 last year. He had al­ways been an ac­tive sports­man in his younger years. Hav­ing no in­ten­tion of giv­ing up this life­style in later life, he de­cided to par­tic­i­pate in the World Mas­ter Games, an in­ter­na­tional mul­ti­sport com­pe­ti­tion. In 2016, he and his team set a world record in the 4x400-me­ter re­lay in the 85-year-old group in the Games in Aus­tralia. Su’s team­mates are Sun Guiben (born in 1928), Wang Zhiy­ong (born in 1924) and Wang Jin­biao (born in 1931).
