Greg Norman in the Men's Health Mag

Retirement is treating Greg Norman pretty well. And that’s probably because he hasn’t stopped working out. The 64-year-old, in an interview with Men’s Health, revealed his current training habits; and declared his wish to be the “longest-living Norman”. “I’ve been very open about the fact that I want to be the longest-living Norman,” he told Men’s Health.

“And the Normans have got some really good genes. On my mother’s side, it’s 90s and 100s. My dad [Mervyn] is 93 this year. “And I’d like to hit 108, 110.”

Norman said his work designing golf courses has helped him stay active, along with his extensive exercise routine. “I’ve just been in Saudi Arabia and we were walking up and down hills in 118-degree [48°C] heat,” Norman said. “So that all bodes well at my age. Apart from that, I just enjoy doing it, quite honestly.”

The two-time Open Championship winner explained he’s planning another trekking trip in the Himalayas, and that he’s no longer taking any painkillers like he did during his golf career. “I’m free of everything,” he said. “My body has been cleansed.”

– Male Reviews:

Neil Armstrong

(1930–2012) was an American astronaut who gained the distinction of being the first person to both land and walk on the moon.  “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong (21 July 1969).

In December 1968, Armstrong was chosen to be the commander for Apollo 11, which would be the first planned mission to dock and land on the moon. Armstrong was chosen to be the first person who would have the distinction of walking on the moon.  Some suggest NASA chose Armstrong because he didn’t have a large ego.


Oliver Cromwell 

(1599 – 1658) is a contentious figure in British history. Some see him as a defender of Parliamentary democracy fighting a tyrannical King. It is argued his defence of Parliament led to the development of a modern democracy. However, others see him in a different light, pointing to his seizure of power as ‘Lord Protectorate’ and the massacres of the Irish and Scots which were a form of genocide. He has also been criticised for his rigid puritanism, although in his reign Jews were permitted to re-enter Britain and there was a certain religious tolerance.
