81-Year-Old Lands Epic Backflip In The Pool

A lot of people think that once you get older, it means you are limited in what you can do. People will tell you all of the things that you will miss out on or the things that you are no longer allowed to do. But age is really nothing but a number and if you set your mind to something, the possibilities are endless.


81-year-old Mr. McCoy knew that he could do a backflip in the pool, but there were a lot of doubters around him. He decided to prove everybody wrong and there is proof on camera to back it all up. Just watch as Mr. McCoy gets in the pool, surrounded by three friends. From there, they help lift this grandpa up into the air and he goes flying. And with perfect precision, Mr. McCoy does a backflip with cheers all around him. It is obvious that this man is young at heart and everyone loves it.

I cannot get over how great he looks for someone his age and all of the life and spirit that he has. It truly shows that age can’t hold you back when you are determined and strive to be your best. This is not only entertaining, but it’s also very inspiring to watch. Mr. McCoy may be a grandpa but I think that he has more energy than most men half his age. I sure hope this is what I am like when I’m in my eighties. Who else agrees?
