Women kicked and cheered their way to a competition in Japan the older set.
Only women over the age of 49 can enter the annual competition in Japan. Ninety dancers on eight teams performed three-minute routines in matching uniforms this year.
The average age of the competitors was 62, and the oldest woman to compete was 75. A 74-year-old cheerleader said she loved dancing because it energized her and made her feel 20 years younger.
The Japan Senior Cheer Association launched the competition four years ago.
