This is what 71 looks like!

He always has people wondering about his youthful look. The American
Drug Free Powerlifting Association asked him to produce a certified copy of his birth certificate.
Some people questioned his real age.  He was born January 26, 1938.

The July 2002 issue of Powerlifting USA stated "Rich Flores at 165 lbs. won the outstanding lifter award in the Masters Division, while setting three world records; Squatting 513 lbs., Deadlifting 534 lbs. and Totaling 1311 pounds at the age of sixty-four and Rich has found the fountain of youth."

He attributes his youthfulness to working out on a consistent basis, good clean living, eating right, taking a lot of nutrients and a happy and healthy relationship with his wife Cathy.
