77-Year-Old Veteran Schools Youngsters in a Push-up Challenge

By on

Never challenge an old veteran to a push-up challenge, or you will get a lesson. This is what some youngsters learned after a 77-year-old veteran kicked their butts in an old-fashioned push-up competition.

As this video shows, you can never be too old to teach young pups a good lesson. Even if he is decades old than the rest of the guys in the competition, that does not stop the veteran from showing that he still has what it takes to beat the rest of them.

Check out how this 77-year-old veteran shows the young pups a lesson in a push-up challenge:

The video, which was posted by YouTube user Egor KO, was taken during a pushup competition that happened on May 9 in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk.

In the video, the crowd initially looks on at the contestants doing the pushups. Later, the crowd counts in Russian as the young men drop out one by one while the older gentleman continues. Finally, the crowd begins to encouragingly chant to the 77-year-old veteran, saying ?well done? in Russian.

May 9, also known as Victory Day, marks the surrender of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union during World War II (which is also known in the Soviet Union as the Great Patriotic War). It is commemorated in Ukraine and Russia, as well as other countries in eastern Europe such as Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, and Kazakhstan.

The fourth largest city in Ukraine, Dnipropetrovsk is regarded as a political and economic powerhouse in the country. Many of the country?s important political figures hailed from Dnipropetrovsk. An important industrial center of Ukraine, the city was considered one of the major centers of the nuclear, space, and arms industries of the former Soviet Union.
