101-year-old athlete wins 100m gold

101-year-old Indian athlete Man Kaur sprinted to take gold in the 100m at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand, on Monday April 24.

As the only competitor in the 100+ age category in the discipline, Kaur completed her one-woman race in a time of 1 minute,14.58 seconds to wild cheers from the crowd. She was just 1 minute, 4.09 seconds inside the women’s world record of 10.49 seconds over the distance, which was set by US sprinter Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.
