102-Year-Old Indian Woman Wins Gold Medal At World Masters Athletics ChampionshipHome > Inspiring news
"Age is just a number" - This quote has been proven by India's oldest female athlete Man Kaur. Hailing from Patiala in Punjab, the 102-year-old athlete has made India proud by clinching the gold medal at the World Masters Athletics Championship in the 200 metre race.
According to a report in History TV18, Kaur began her career at the age of 93, after being encouraged by her son Guru Dev. "When she ran for the first time, she completed a 100 metre track in 1 minute and 1 second," her son said.
Twitter has been flooded with messages in support of the athlete after former actor and supermodel Milind Soman tweeted about her victory.
