Kane Tanaka is only 70 days away from the nr. 3 spot. I think she'll make it, but for a 117-year-old every single day is another achievement.

Looks like Lucile Randon isn't the only person still alive born in 1904.

Francisca Celsa dos Santos, born October 21st 1904. Officially validated yesterday by GRG.

Apparently Bolsonaro is meeting her to congratulate her with a hug and kiss included.

Little list of master athletes who seem to be really indestructible, though they are known for no reason other than their longevity. Anyway I think almost all of them will live past 110, and someone (cough cough Fauja Singh) past 115. Here they are:

 

*Stanislaw Kowalski (1910), oldest man in Poland too

*Hidekichi Miyazaki (1910), known as the Golden Bolt.

*Fauja Singh (1911), the Sikh Tornado.

*Robert Marchand (1911), cyclist and commie.

*Mieko Nagaoka (1914) Japanese swimmer

*Ida Keeling (1915)

*Donald Pellmann (1915) broke Miyazaki's records

*Giuseppe Ottaviani (1916)

*Frederico Fisher (1917) current champ

*Ugo Sansonetti (1919) manager and athlete

 

Though they all seem ridicolous while doing their activities, I swear there is a good possibility at least one of these ten lives past 120.

Giuseppe Ottaviani dead at 104.

Might have to be three people. Fredie Blom might be recognized as world oldest man soon, and there's enough evidence to believe him.

Fredie Blom dead at "116".

The article still thinks Bob Weighton is the world's oldest living man

It refers to a May interview when Weighton was still alive. Nice try, JTrost.

Ha! 
I knew someone might say that.

Even mainstream media is taking it surprisingly seriously. But if true, he would have been two months older than Jiroemun Kimura.

Not to call bullshit on this story, as he had a birth certificate to back his claim that is said to be legit, but there's something about it that makes me not believe it. Not necessarily blaming him, as he might just be unaware of his true age, but he did not seem like he was 116 in the slightest. His physical appearance for one, especially if he spends lots of his time outside. He was walking around and chopping wood like a month ago. Again, he could be 116 but it is very very unlikely IMO.

Even again, he was included in Wikipedia's recent deaths list (look at its main page).

Kane Tanaka cracked the top 5 last week, with just three weeks left to take 3rd place. Does anybody have news on how she's doing?

Recent photo from a month ago. I believe she’s doing well.

2 days from now, Kane Tanaka will be the 4th oldest person to have ever lived.

 

2 weeks from now, she will be the 3rd oldest person to have ever lived.

 

In less than 4 months,, given she lives that long, she will be the first person in 21 years to reach the age of 118.
