When it comes to 102-year-old athlete Man Kaur, India’s oldest female athlete, age has never been a restriction, which she once again proved by winning a gold medal at the World Masters Athletics Championships in Malaga, Spain, in the 200m race.
Kaur was 93 when she was encouraged and motivated by her 78-year-old son Guru Dev to start her career as an athlete.
LOOK AT THAT SMILE !!! Man Kaur from India wins the 200m GOLD in the World Masters Athletics #WMAMalaga2018. Age group 100- 104 years!! What a privilege for every person in the world to see her in action and to share her joy 😊😊 #PinkathonFOREVER
“When she ran for the first time, she completed a 100 meters track in one minute and on second,” her son said.
Amazed and proud of her feat, people took to Twitter to share her golden moment and praise her for what she is- a superwoman!
