Current social media phenomenon, 87 year old grandmother Him Goon-lom, a resident from Thailand’s Trang Province, loves playing ‘sepak takraw’, or kick volleyball, with people of all ages. This Grandmother has become a celebrity as one of the Thai fittest seniors. Grandma Him, who still has a graceful playing style even at the age of 90, says it keeps her fit, unlike her 94 year old ailing husband…who does not play.
Every morning she is up early to sweep the leaves up in front of her house and to cook breakfast for herself and her husband. She prefers vegetarian food and she has been playing Takraw for many years. She is joined by her friends a 5pm everyday for a game and Grandma Him says she will continue to playing until she can’t.
