Nice start, though obviously there is way more claims who could apply to be in top 10, but they probably went under the radar. I actually wanted to start a topic named "Claims from China", but for some reason I cannot find much new claimants (aged 110-114). I used to search for Chinese claimants for some time like 4+ years ago, and it used to be much easier - just searching for "110岁" was enough - multiple claims would appear. Nowadays, nothing...

[Polite request: could you also add the supercentenarians' names in Standard Chinese (so in characters)? Thank you.]

Hello, thank you for the request, but I don't know how to put text in other languages.

Google their transcribed name - it should also lead you to an original version of their name. 😉

Out of curiosity, does anyone know who has been reported as the oldest CLAIMANT in China following the passing of Alimihan Seyiti? Just curious how old the "official oldest person" in the country is claimed to be.

No one has yet been reported as the oldest living person in China. However it seems the oldest claim now is Zhu Zhengshi (born 21 Sept 1900?)

  10. Shen Guangyuan (born 18 Jan 1911) 

Is it really possible to give someone the title of "China's OLP" when it's a country of 1.4 billion inhabitants, spurious age claims, and little prospect of the person in question being validated? How do you define "plausible", for instance?

The only claim on here who I'm fully convinced of is Shen Guangyuan, due to his biography. But even then, it's possible he could be a year younger from our perspective due to the East Asian age counting. 

I'm also pretty confident that Yang Longsheng is the age claimed as well (his daughter is around 90, and he has some records from the 1950s stating his exact age), but the 1910 birth year in his case is almost certainly unconverted, so he would be born in 1911 in the West.

There's always a risk of slight age fudging. There's American immigration records from the 30s and 40s for Zheng Ji (under the other name he used, Lising T. Cheng), that give ages indicating birth in 1901 or 1902, for example.

I recently saw on a website forum that both Tao Ruisheng and Chen Zhongbo have passed away. Don't Know if it's a reliable source though. I don't remember what website but it's the most recent link under "references" on the gerontology page. 

First Supercentenarian I learned about: Salvatore Caruso (1905-2015)
Favorite Male Supercentenarian: Juan Vicente Pérez Mora (1909-Living)
Favorite Female Supercentenarian: Tomiko Itooka (1908-Living)

@aquanaut_chalk He was last confirmed alive in July 2022 (in September 2022 he is no longer among the living). It supports that he died (after), fl.5 July 2022. (Maybe it wasn't an official confirmation)...

(The report mentions all centenarians from Shanghai who were alive on 30 September 2022), The two are no longer on the list (Tao Ruisheng and Chen Zhongbo)...
