A resident of Bungur Sarang hamlet of Cisarua village in Purwakarta, West Java, Anami, will participate in the world's oldest woman contest in Russia this year, her daughter said on Tuesday.

Her family claimed that Anami was now around 140 years old, but her real age would be revealed through a thorough medical examination, said Rati, Anami's third daughter from her marriage to her second husband.

"However, the plan to participate in the world's oldest woman contest depends on the decision of the Purwakarta district administration," Rati said in Purwarkarta as quoted by Antara news agency.

Accompanied by her children and grandchildren, Anami went to meet district head Dedi Mulyadi at his office on Tuesday to request his support.

Dedi said he supported Anami's participation in the contest, but proposed that she undergo a medical examination to find out her real age. If she was indeed 140 years old, she would definitely win the contest, which had been initiated by Russian billionaire Dmitry Kaminsky.

The winner of this contest will receive Rp 13 billion (US$984,105).

Currently, the world's oldest living woman is Jeralean Talley, 115, of the US

I wonder how they mean to determine her age? The tree ring method is definitely out.

I suppose she will fly from Indonesia to Russia. That seems like a difficult trek for a lady of 140?

Anybody know where in Russia this contest is to be held?

What's this about? I couldn't find much more information about this 'contest' in English. I've never heard of it before.

I'm seriously thinking WTH?

..so too would be examining the teeth as they do with horses! ;)
Would be very surprising if she was indeed 140 years old.
