Charles started running at the age of 95 and he says that he is getting to know many things at this age. He also competed to break the world championship for long-jump. Although he couldn’t break the record, he won hearts with his performance. Anand Mahindra captioned the video (which he Tweeted) saying, “And in the end…Actually, for a man like him, there’s never an end. He must be still running…” As per a report by Mail Online, Charles is a retired dentist.

As per a report by Mail Online, Charles broke the world record at British Masters Indoor Championships for 200m at the age of 95. The video of the race has already got over 2,00,000 views on YouTube. In the video posted by Anand Mahindra, Charles can also be seen extolling the virtues of love. He says, one is never to old to fall in love. He further adds that he has planned many things for his life. Charles shows that life is nothing without spirit and those who are seen as old by the society can also be lively and healthy. All it takes is a change of mindset and the willpower to do it. Be that as it may, but this tale definitely is setting goals for each one of us.
