Ada Thompson is my favourite supercentenarian. I don't really have any ordered lists, but she's definitely the one I am most attached to.

09 - Asa Takii

Asa Takii was a survivor of the 1945 atomic bombing in Hiroshima. But I think she's a very underrated person.

Her information is scarce and many sources of her story are difficult to find on a Japanese web search.

It is truly amazing that she survived a large amount of radiation (the atomic bomb killed other her family) and lived to the age of 114.

I'll only mention a few supercentenarians that I have been in personal contact with in no particular order.

  • Gulli Bergendahl (1904-2015) - we spoke on the phone a couple of times
  • Alice Östlund (1906-2018) - talked with her on the phone once
  • Emma Morano (1899-2017) - met her in Italy in December 2015
  • Jadwiga Szubartowicz (1905-2017) - met her in Poland on her 110th birthday. She made me eat like two tons of bigos so that I had to lay down on her couch from being so stuffed
  • Carl Mattsson (1908-2019) - talked to him on the phone when he turned 110 and met him when he became the oldest man ever from Sweden a week before his passing. Video can be found here:

I have a lot of favorites in general (i.e Calment, Tanaka, etc etc etc - too many to list) so I'll do top 3 favorite SC I've found/researched:

In no particular order:

Antonio Ardon Soto (for being one of the earliest LA males discovered so far and being relatively closely related to another SC)

Julio Cesar Mora Tapia (for taking a GWR title with his wife)

Flaviano Jubane (for being Filipino, one of the very few non-Japanese Asian male SCs documented so far)
