Here are the 10 oldest people in the world whose ages have been validated by the group:

1. Misao Okawa, 116, Japan

2. Gertrude Weaver, 116, United States

3. Jeralean Talley, 115, United States

5. Bernice Madigan, 114, United States

6. Emma Morano-Martinuzzi, 114, Italy

7. Antonia Gerena Rivera, 114, United States

8. Ethel Lang, 114, England
