 When Tony took up running as a hobby he was 42 years old. Now 42 years later he's a national champion and a world record holder.
He never imagined at the age of 84 this is where he'd be, but then he doesn't meet many people in their 80s who are out training four times a week.
"I can see it's a bit unusual, yes. But it's been my life, " he told the reporter.
The retired officer runs at a track near his home in Leeds.
At an event in Italy last month he set a world record in the 80 metres hurdles (跨栏)with a time of under 17 seconds. But he sees no reason to slow down and his ambition is still to be competing when he passes a hundred.
"I probably won't be doing a crouch start (蹲式起跑),but it's only 16 years away," he joked. Like anyone his age, he's had health problems. He's had a string of severe heart attacks, but doctors have told him as long as it makes him feel good, he should carry on running.
"I can't let my heart get in the way of my training. When I am sprinting I have to give it my absolute all. My heart is the last thing on my mind." he said.
He trains every other day, dances and plays hockey and he recently cuts down on alcohol and chocolate. He said, "I've heard alcohol can lead to dementia and I don't want that. I've cut down to one glass of wine every other day. I now have to stay as fit as I can be to keep up my lifestyle."
Tony's next birthday is next September. And the first thing he wants to do is become the world's fastest 85-year-old.
