WATCH: Inspiring 101-year-old woman wins 100 metre sprint
Man Kaur, a 101-year-old Indian woman, racked up her 17th gold medal this week at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand, completing the 100 metre sprint in one minute 14 seconds.
Truth be told, she was the sole competitor in the race, with no other runners coming forward to take part in the 100-years-and-over category.
Speaking to reporters via an interpreter, Kaur said after the race: "I enjoyed it and am very, very happy.
"I'm going to run again, I'm not going to give up. I will participate, there's no full stop."
Kaur started participating in athletics events eight years ago, at the age of 93, following encouragement from her son Gurdev Singh, 78, who also competes in the Masters Games.
Speaking to the Canadian Press last year, Singh said: "When she wins, she goes back to India, and she's excited to tell others, 'I have won so many medals from this country.' Winning makes her happy."
When training at home in Chandigarh, Kaur runs a number of short distances every evening - and she believes other women should follow in her footsteps.
"She encourages them, old ladies, that they should run, they should not eat wrong foods, and they should encourage their children also to take part in the Games," said her son.
