105-Year-Old Man Breaks HUGE World Record, Proving That You Can Do Anything

January 05, 2017

It took Robert Marchand nearly a century to prove his former coach wrong.

The 105-year-old man set an amazing world record by pedaling 14 miles in one hour. WHAT?!

He was born in 1911 - the year before the Titanic sank.

In 105 years, you live to see a LOT. He's lived through two world wars for goodness sake! He's also had several interesting careers such as being a firefighter, truck driver, and a lumberjack.

It wasn't until he turned 68 that he became an avid cyclist. Since taking up this hobby, he hasn't looked back since.

More than 60 years ago, his cycling coach told him that he should just give up because he would never achieve ANYTHING on a bike.

Sorry to say, but Coach, I think he definitely proved you wrong!
