Sachin Tendulkar

Age: 39
Occupation: Cricket player

Cricket's greatest-ever batsman (partisans for Don Bradman can cavil until the cows come home) is still reaching new highs: he recently became the first player to reach 100 scores of 100 in international play. The "ton of tons" came a full year after his 99th, leading some to wonder whether Tendulkar was slowing down. That's nonsense, and now that the acknowledged pressure to reach 100 is off, he's likely to cut loose — a terrifying prospect for opponents, but a terrific one for lovers of the sport.
