A photo from open sources Japanese Sakari Momoi is considered the oldest a man on the planet according to the Guinness Book of Records. True this he wears the title only a year after Alexander Imich died – an American scientist who was older than Sakari … for one day.
Recall that the oldest woman in the Guinness Book of Records Japanese woman is also recognized – Misao Okawa, she will turn 117 on March 5 years. The Land of the Rising Sun is generally famous for its centenarians, their here most of all in the world. At the moment – twenty one of fifty recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.
Namely – fixed, because, as claimed Researchers, there are significantly more centenarians on Earth. Also, there are probably people much older than Momoi and Okawa – we them just don’t know, because they were not registered in the famous the book.
By the way, let’s say that some record holders, such as the most the tallest man on Earth living in Ukraine simply does not wish even mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records (why – no one knows), so her champions are often very arbitrary. Nonetheless current birthday of Sakar Momoi deserves true delight and all respect: living up to one hundred and twelve years is no joke!
