An old lady roller skating has everyone in awe and proves that age is just a number!
Roller skating requires balance, practice, and just a little poise. If you’re anything like me, you may have daily battles with the laws of gravity just by walking up the stairs or getting out of your car.
Gravity usually takes over, and I find myself either in public display of losing the battle of gravity or with scraped elbows. Most days, it’s fifty-fifty. Yet this old lady makes roller skating look as easy as riding a bike or, frankly, breathing.
An old woman’s roller skating has everyone in awe
She caught the attention of several people who later posted her easy and joyous roller skating moves, including a professional skater named Marcus. He was floored by how this woman swept past other competitors like the wind. So, he had to capture this woman’s talent.
The caption posted with the video reads: “When Marcus noticed the woman, she was amazed at how graceful and talented she was, despite her 86 years.” I bet it’s safe to say we all agree with him one hundred percent!
In the video, you’ll see that the 86-year-old roller-skating woman doesn’t seem to care. She, too, is not worried about breaking her hip. She is dressed in a t-shirt and leggings, which happen to have skates printed all over them. I think her outfit shows, she not only loves sports, but she’s good at it!
This woman proves that getting older is really something to look forward to. We can engage in activities and hobbies that bring us joy and show the younger generation that age really is just a number!
