80 Year Old Bodybuilder Competes Once Again. Showing Age is Only a Number.

Mr. Moon worked in the hospitality industry for 64 years and even cooked for the Queen before taking up body-building. Since walking into a gym just four years ago, the former acclaimed chef and restaurateur has taken out four Victorian and Australian bodybuilding championships (over-70 division).

“[Gym owner] Graeme Lancefield [former Mr. Universe winner] was so supportive that I’ve never looked back and I’ve never felt better”.
Mr. Moon returned for another bout of the Australian bodybuilding championships, held last month in Melbourne.
