Svend Stensgaard has always been active. He worked as a customs officer for the Danish government and enjoyed the thrill of chasing smugglers. He's also exercised throughout his life, including taking up powerlifting at the age of 70.
He's excelled at this sport, even winning medals. Stensgaard has faced challenges along the way. 3 years ago, he had a heart attack while swimming and sank to the bottom of the pool. But he's recovered and is lifting again, sometimes 150 kg at a time. Hitting the gym 4 to 6 times a week keeps him in phenomenal shape. Watch a video of him training with impressive vigor at BBC Magazine (auto-start video).
