CAIRO - While most men of Sobhi Mohammed's age are relaxing in their twilight years, this 80-year-old prefers lifting weights, and putting his much younger gym mates to shame in the process.

"People keep asking me when I am going to retire ... I simply answer never," said Mohammed, who has been bodybuilding for 60 years, at al-Shams Club in Cairo, where he has been working out for the past four decades.

Mohammed, who was director general of the property tax authority in Egypt's Giza province, believes in the adage that "age is just a number" and it is no barrier to ambitions if people still have a strong will to achieve them.
