77-Year-Old Veteran Shows A Bunch Of Young Guns How It's Done In Pushup Competition

As this vet proves, you're never too old to teach youngsters a lesson.

According to the description on the video above, the veteran is 77 years old, but that doesn't stop him from kicking some young whippersnapper butt in a good old-fashioned pushup competition.

According to comments left by YouTube user Egor KO who posted the video online, the competition took place in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk on May 9, the date on which Germany's surrender to the Soviet Union during WWII is commemorated in Russia and Ukraine.

At first, the crowd looks on and counts in Russian as one by one the young men drop out and the older gentleman continues. Then the crowd begins to chant encouragingly, saying "Молодец," which according to a HuffPost translation means "fine fellow" but in this context means "well done."

Just look at him go!
