A new video shows a 77-year-old veteran in military uniform defeat a group of young men in a push-up contest, proving that age truly is just a number.
The event took place in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk during a celebration of Victory Day on May 9, the date Germany surrendered to the Soviet Union in 1945, the Daily Mail reports.
With 37 reps, the unidentified man manages to outperform most of the young men as the crowd cheers him on.
After 45 seconds of the video, which was uploaded to YouTube by Egor KO, the vet is greeted by two women that were cheering and carrying a bunch of flowers.
Onlookers are heard chanting “Молодец," which according to the Huffington Post translates to “fine fellow” but in this context means “well done.”
His opponents salute his efforts and shake his hand.
The push-up competition was part of a larger initiative to commemorate the soldiers who served during World World War II.
Participants performed a total of 34,032 reps at the Festival Pier in Dnipropetrovsk, representing the number of hours the war lasted.
Watch the video of the competition below. It’s hard not to root for the man in uniform.
