Campbell left, is serenaded by Boston neighbour John TrumanHE’S one of the brainiest men on the planet.Now Donegal’s Nobel Prize winner Professor Bill Campbell has revealed he’s very healthy too….thanks to his ‘fitness’ regime.The 85-year-old is the pride of his native Ramelton after jointly winning the Nobel Prize for medicine this week. He revealed his enormous pride in his Donegal roots and his family – his sister Lizzie lives in Ray and his brother Bert still lives in Ramelton.And he has also revealed an active lifestyle has helped him remain sharp“Sometimes I do feel tired, believe me, but mostly I don’t,” Bill said.“I play ping pong (table tennis) and I play that three times a week, in the afternoons. “I kayak in the morning when it’s serene and quiet on the lake. I like to go out in the morning when there’s no one around, and the lake is peaceful and quiet. I’m still active.“I’m a very happy man. I have a wonderful wife and wonderful children, and I have lots of interests. As a scientist you have to allow time for things other than science.”Bill is a something of an all-rounder – and paints and writes poetry“I have other hobbies and things that I sometimes struggle to find time to keep doing. Like painting and writing poetry,” said Bill.“There are so many things that can be done. I think one should look for even small challenges, for example to be in some small way creative. I mean, I think if you read poetry you should try to write poetry.” NOBEL WINNER PROFESSOR BILL REVEALS HOW TABLE TENNIS AND KAYAKING KEEP HIM ACTIVE AT 85! was last modified: October 10th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:lifestyleping pongProfessor William C CampbellRameltonlast_img
