Yes, these three stories are worth a look.
Yoga And It's Benefits Explored Some More.

Does Yoga work for Geezer Jocks? I watched Claudia claim a silver medal in W65-69 meters (9.91 seconds) at the USATF Indoor Masters Championships last week. It is still a highly-competitive division in the sprints and Claudia, 69, is at the 'older' space of her age cohort. So, yeah, it works.
Still Flying at 95.
“I eat the wrong things and I don’t exercise,” Marge said. It doesn't sound like a person we should emulate here. Marge Wardenski, 95, is leaning on her genes to keep her going.
And then we find out she hits the zipline, hang glides, goes up in a hot air balloon...and sky dives. She jumped out of a plane 12 days ago. She's leaning on something else, it seems. Spirit.

He won an NHL MVP way back in 1998-99...and he is still playing professional hockey. This is how Jaromir Jagr explains why he still plays at 51. "If you stop, you are going to get fat and unhealthy and get surgeries on back, knees and hips. I would crash down. I see it on everybody else. I’m not doing that. I want to have a happy life, so I’m going to work hard until I die, because it’s the only way.”
