  The Guinness world record for the oldest competitive female bodybuilder was set by Ernestine Shepherd (USA, b. 16 June 1936).

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the oldest female acrobatic salsa dancer, set by Sarah Paddy Jones (UK, born 1 July 1934) who won the first prize on the Spanish TV talent show "Tu Si Que Vales".

  Almost ten years ago Tomar took her granddaughter to a local firing range in Johri village, in Uttar Pradesh, India.

  She wanted to learn a new skill but was too shy to go alone. In the end it was Tomar who was welcomed into the club with open arms.

 "As I was waiting around I decided to have a go. The coach spotted me and was amazed at my aim.

 "He told me to come back so I did. Initially I was just supporting my granddaughter but I enjoyed it so much it became a passion and I looked forward to going to the club every week," she said.

  While Tomar tended to her daily chores on her farm and raised her family, she practiced her aim whenever she could using stones and throwing them at water bottles.
  "I wanted to do something useful with my life and show people my capabilities," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

  "As soon as I shot my first pistol I was hooked. And now I've shown everyone there's no disadvantages to my age. If you're focused you can do anything," she said.
