Irishman, 99, competes at tango championship

BUENOS Aires: A 99-year-old Irishman competing at the World Tango Championships in Argentina has received an ovation for his performance from aficionados at the Buenos Aires venue. “Tango brings me a lot of happiness,” James McManus told local newspapers through an interpreter. “Dancing is very important socially.” Tango fans in McManus’ native Ireland raised money for his transatlantic trip. The fit nonagenarian said he only took up tango in 2002, when he was already in his 80s.
