She’s going to tackle 13.1 miles this weekend in the Indian capital.
Even though Mann Kaur is 96 years old, she’s made one thing clear: she’s going to run.
The Indian woman, who was born before World War 1 ended, is taking part in Aritel Delhi Half Marathon on September 30.
According to an article posted on The Asian Age Web site, Kaur decided to give running a shot thanks in part to her 75-year-old son, Gurdev Singh, who lives in Canada, and is also a runner.
Kaur recently won a gold medal in the 100-meter and 200-meter events at the World Masters Championships in Sacramento, California.
She is called the “Golden Girl of India”.
“I feel privileged to have represented India at the world masters athletic championship,” she said. “This year, my son and I are participating in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon and I am really excited. It’s a message for all the people around — Have Feet, Will Run, Have Will, Will Triumph!”
