1. Tom Brady, Football
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots quarterback turned 41 in August 2018 and he continues to play at a very high level as he ages into this new decade. Brady entered 2017 after playing in one of the most thrilling NFL games ever and leading the Patriots to a historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Brady has said he wants to play until he’s 45—at this rate, why doubt him?
Brady became the oldest quarterback in history to win a Super Bowl with a win in Super Bowl LIII against the Rams—his sixth Super Bowl win—and he isn’t showing signs of slowing down.
Brady has had some fun with hinting about his retirement, and he did it again in June 2018 when he commented on an Instagram post. After telling Oprah that retirement likely will come “sooner rather than later,” Brady commented on an ESPN Instagram post, writing “Cuarenta y cinco” (45). Many have speculated Brady might want to play to 45 because of that comment. Brady will turn turns 41 on August 3, so he still has some time.
