In a gripping tale of unwavering dedication and passion towards the sport, a 100-year-old Indian runner has become the talk of the town after she picked up a gold medal in the 100-metre race at the Americas Masters Games in Vancouver.

India’s Man Kaur hailing from Chandigarh, took one and a half minutes to finish off the 100-meter sprint and picked up a gold medal at the American Masters Games to become a worldwide inspiration. Ms Kaur was the only female contestant in her age category at the competition for older athletes.
Kaur’s son Gurdev Singh, who also competes in the Masters Games, said he knew his mother could become a star in her age category, CBCnews reported.

Kaur began running at age 93 at the suggestion of her son and went on to win more than 20 medals in Masters Games across the globe.
