Watch a 101-year-old woman win a gold medal in a 100m sprint
Not quite the London Marathon but heroic nonetheless.
A 101-year-old woman has won her 17th gold medal at the World Masters Games in New Zealand after winning a 100 metre sprint.
Man Kaur was the sole competitor in the 100-years-and-over category 100m race, but that didn’t stop her.
A video shows Ms Kaur taking on the challenge, with her jog turning into a sort of amble by the end of the 100m.
The World Masters Games is an international multi-sport event held every four years – it is open to sports people of all abilities and most ages.
The amazing centenarian won her race in a time of one minute 14 seconds.
When she trains, Ms Kaur runs a number of short distances every evening at her home in Chandigarh, India.
