Man Kaur is proving age really is just a number.
The 101-year-old woman from India recently won the 100-meter dash in 74 seconds at the World Master Games in New Zealand. Though she was the only runner in the 100+ age category, she made history as the oldest female athlete to win a gold medal in the race, according to CNN.
Kaur suffers from osteoporosis and a curved spine but she doesn’t let that slow her down. She also won gold in the 200-meter dash and shot-put events. The World Master Games are known as the Olympics for veterans and they are held ever four years, usually featuring people over the age of 35. Kaur also ran in the American Masters Games in Canada last summer.
She did not even start becoming the athletic sort until age 93, after her son, 79-year-old Gurdev Singh, impressed with her running skills, convinced her she should compete at the World Masters Games. As her coach, Singh says she trains daily and eats very healthy food. He also says his mother stays positive and keeps herself busy.
Sounds like Kaur has found the secret to a long and prosperous life!
