Added 08 July 2010


James Sisnett, Barbados’ oldest man at 110, has been listed as the third oldest man in the world by the United States-based Gerontology Research Group (GRG). Sisnett’s name appears at No. 74 on the latest GRG table of 79 “supercentenarians” (people aged 110 and over), among only three men on the list. About a fifth of the supercentenarians are from Japan, with the United States having the second highest number. (GC)
