Jim Thompson, the founder and chairman of logistics giant Crown Worldwide, celebrated his 75th birthday this year by doing 75 pushups in just 47 seconds, according to The Jersey Journal.
The feat was accomplished in front of Thompson's cheering employees at the company's headquarters in Hong Kong on Wednesday.
"It's become a tradition and creates quite a stir." Thompson said in a press release. "I managed to get through 75 with no problems this time so we'll have to see how long the tradition continues…I don't know if I'll be able to do 100 at 100 but I hope I'm around to try."
Thompson, who has a net worth of $1.4 billion, started Crown Worldwide in 1965. At that time it was known as Transport Services International. Now, the company has offices in 60 countries and is approaching its 50th anniversary in February.
