Ye Wen could be easily mistaken for a fit woman in her late 20s with her toned beach body and glowing complexion, but she’s easily double that age. Rocking swimsuits with her killer physique, the 50-year-old mom from from Henan, China has netizens amazed by her youthful looks.
According to Sina (via Shanghaiist), Ye Wen has been working out in the gym since she was 30 after discovering the joys of exercise and swimming. She regularly does two-hour workouts in the gym for at least two to three times per week.
In her daily routine, she strictly sets aside a regular time for a good swim. She even did an impressive swim across the Straits of Malacca in March of this year. The long stretch of water she successfully traversed separates the Malay Peninsula from Sumatra. She is now going for the Han River in South Korea for her next swim.
In a report published last year in The Journal of Physiology, researchers at King’s College London and the University of Birmingham in England found that older people who keep themselves active tend to resemble much younger people physiologically. The findings, which studied the effects of exercise on aging, revealed that how fast or slow a person ages is largely dependent on the individual.
The lovely pentagenarian, who claimed that she was already slim and fit in her 30s, said she intends to her keep active lifestyle so she can continue wearing a bikini until she is 80-years-old.
