84 Year-Old Gymnast Inspires Us All

At 84, Marjorie Carter is a true inspiration.

Marjorie was part of Great Britain’s women’s gymnastics team, specializing in vault. She competed in 2 Olympic Games, in 1952 and 1960.  She went on to coach the sport for 25 years as she raised a family, retiring at the age of 75.

Today, Marjorie is a grandmother of five.  She still takes care of her body by participating in gymnastics classes. She told Inside Edition about adopting a fitness schedule she maintains to this day. “I joined a gym class which was only once a week and eventually, I progressed to a more elite gymnastics club where I train three times a week.”

Marjorie is in spectacular shape. She can do splits, cartwheels, flips, and more. Marjorie believes her training keeps her feeling young and wards off "old age". “I have now completed a full circle as I now train to keep my body in a healthy condition,” Marjorie told Inside Edition. “And now I work, I come to the gym three times a week, to combat old age.”

With the motto “Use it or you lose it,” Marjorie reminds us to  stay active and never let anything be an excuse... not even age!
