She is 101 years old but can give ‘ competitors half her age on the running track a run for their money.
Man Kaur is a centenarian sprinter from Chandigarh in Punjab in northern India. She might look frail but Kaur is an epitome of strength, grit and zeal.
With 20 gold medals to her name in international competitions, Kaur is anything but your usual granny.
She wakes up early morning for practice, runs 200 meter every day, goes to gym and lifts weight so she can stay fit enough to continue her passion.
The great-grandmother started her journey as an athlete just eight years ago at the tender age of 93.
She had no prior sporting experience before her son Gurdev Singh, also a sprinter, suggested she join him in competing on the international masters games circuit.
