The man who won the Mr. Universe title in 1952 celebrated his 100th birthday this weekend. The centenarian attributes his success to his stint in jail and his longevity to his healthy diet.
Toothless, 4-foot-11-inch Indian bodybuilder Manohar Aich was feted Saturday by the West Bengali government for his achievement, The Indian Express reported.
The next day, he turned 100 years old.
Although he stopped lifting weights after he suffered a stroke last year, Aich is still a fixture at his gym in Kolkata.
"These youngsters want the easy way out these days. They don’t have the time and energy to go through the drills in an old-style gymnasium. They don’t worship their body," he told the newspaper.
