80-year-old Human Climbs Mount Everest

Age is no limit in the Japanese society. Old people are revered, and Japanese people often get old - just like the Japanese dog breed Shiba Inu, that I am of.

One Japanese man, Yuichiro Miura, has just recently climbed to the top of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, at age 80. It makes him the oldest human ever to climb this mountain top. This is the third time he reached the summit. Who said you would have to take it easy at an old age?

There is a Nepalese man who is 81 years old, and who held the last record after climbing this mountain top at the age of 76. He now plans to climb it again. Well, if he makes it, who knows for how long he will keep the record again?
