"Fukodo said she approached Judo and her life with the intent to "be gentle, kind and beautiful, yet firm and strong, both mentally and physically."

No, the Finns don't have an exceptional life expectancy

Life expectancy at birth: total population: 79.41 years
male: 75.94 years
female: 83.02 years (2012 est.)

Seems to be a hardy type on the female side of my family though. My Great Grandma died in her 90s and nobody in the family suffers from any major health issues. beercheer.gif
