She certainly looks like she's full of strength! 🙂

Given that she survived COVID-19 at age 113, I think that she can go very far!

For me it will be the first birthday of a supercentenarian since I registered in the forum.

 

I am glad that the first birthday is Maria Branyas Morera and she is 116 years old.

I agree that 116 is still a very special birthday and (health permitting) it will be great to have someone once again in the 116+ age group, with hopefully a second not too long afterwards.

in my own mind 117 is required for “legend” status in supercentenarians but 116 is still very special.

Personally I think that we have to consider which era a person is from. Filkins reaching 113 in 1928 is even more impressive than someone turning 117 in the 2020s.

The average minimum age of the WOP has been hovering at about 115.5+ for several years now.

 

I wish Mrs. Branyas Morera all the best and am hopeful that she will have a happy 116th birthday soon.

I do agree with that 930310.

Mrs Filkins was, to major extent the Jeanne Calment of her time.

Also worth noting that in the circa 12 years I’ve been following supercentenarians the number of 116+ persons has gone from about 7, to now heading to 26.

So it’s genuinely much more common now.

Every year since 1896 has produced at least one validated person who reached their 116th birthday.

If I'm not mistaken, Filkins' record of 113 years and 214 days took 52 years to break.

 

Fannie Thomas broke the record in November 1980, she died in January 1981 at 113 years and 283 days.

 

But the difference is that at that time people were already reaching ages of 111, 112, even 113 years old.

 

Now with Jeanne Calment no other supercentenarian has reached even 120 years.

 

The one who was close was Kane Tanaka, she was 119 years and 107 days old.

 

Although I don't think she can be considered close to 120 years old, I say this because she barely reached 119 years and 3 months and she still had another 9 months to go before turning 120.

By the way, I have watched a photo of María never seen before. I think she was in her nineties:

Every year since 1896 has produced at least one person who reached age 116. This trend has continued for 1907 with Maria Branyas Morera turning 116.

I like to congratulate supercentenarians when it's the day here.

So tomorrow I will congratulate María Branyas Morera.

But I have a question, what is the probability that María Branyas Morera was born when it was already March 5, 1907 in Spain?

Between San Francisco, California and Catalonia, Spain there is a difference of 9 hours.

So her birthday would be March 5th.

Happy 116th birthday Maria Branyas Morera.

 

I hope she has a good birthday and that she continues to enjoy good health.

 

May it be a year of many good things and good health, I hope that her 117 years are within her reach.

 

My grandfather died on a day like today 5 years ago, at that time María Branyas Morera turned 111 years old.

Maria received another visit this Saturday. It's heartening to see her looking so healthy at 116.

It certainly does appear Cbb12355 and thank you for posting it.

Mrs Morera looks really elegant and sounds fantastic.

@cbb12355 Yes, he looks amazing. And this is a very important visit. He is the president of the Catalan Government.

@chrisr Mrs. Branyas or Mrs. Branyas Morera, not "Mrs. Mora". I think you confused the second surname of Juan Vicente Pérez Mora with the second surname of María Branyas Morera...

Do you think that she is one of the most photographed OLP and with more media coverage? I think so...
