This grandpa only won the gold medal for “Most Notable Metro Ride.”
Wayne McEntire was riding subway while seeing Rio de Janerio to see the Olympics. McEntire was offered a seat reserved for the elderly, as they were riding the metro.
The 68-year old respectfully refused the offer and showed off his strength through the use of the metro post to hoist himself up in the air, showing that age is just an amount.
After the remarkable stunt was pulled by Barker, many folks ran over on the metro to inquire how old he was. His grandson shared with ABC News that “Barker works out every day with light weights and maximum repeats and has pulled similar tricks before, but never in people.”

Barker posted the image of his grandpa where it was fast to go viral to Twitter. The image has recently been retweeted over 100,000 times and has over 132,000 likes (as of time of publication).
I ’ve never experience anything ” Barker said of his grandpa’s viral recognition that was new.
He continued, “He’s consistently been one to put on a show and amuse me and my two brothers, therefore I knew he had something in store. There was no reluctance of any kind or anything like this, he hoisted himself up there for everyone to see and simply caught the post.”
Based on ABC News, this can be the fifth Olympics McEntire has attended as a viewer and he intends to visit Tokyo in 2020.
