A 101-year-old Indian sprinter, Man Kaur, has won the most popular medal at the World Masters Games.
She was heartily cheered when a gold medal was draped around her neck after winning her one-woman 100m race at the Waitakere’s Trusts Arena athletics stadium on Monday.
Man Kaur sporting her special number, 10001 crossed the line in 1min 14.58sec almost 1min 4sec short of the women’s world record for the distance to bag her 17th gold medal in her late-blooming athletic career.
Dubbed the “miracle from Chandigarh” by New Zealand media, she arrived in Auckland to much fanfare a week ago and has been embraced by the city’s Indian community.
She will also take part in the 200m, shot put and javelin this week. Please Join Our Forum Today For More Updates, Click here
