Supercentenarian

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ann Pouder (April 8, 1807 – July 10, 1917) was an early supercentenarian. This photo was taken on her 110th birthday.

A supercentenarian is someone who has lived to the age of 110 years or more, something achieved by only one in a thousand centenarians. A very small number of supercentenarians have lived to be 115. Early uses of the word meant a person well over 100, but now it is just known as people who are 110 or older.

Geert Adriaans Boomgaard (1788 - 1899) is the first undisputed supercentenarian case in history.

Jeanne Calment (1875 - 1997) had the world's longest verified human lifespan at 122 years, 164 days.[1]

Jiroemon Kimura (1897 - 2013) is the longest lived documented man at 116 years, 54 days.[2]
