Her love towards athletics started much later in life. Kaur started running at age 93 when her son, Gurdev Singh, suggested that she join him in the international master’s games circuit. With no health problems to hold Kaur back, she never looked back ever since. She is a prime example of a person who can inspire people and show them that their age is never a limit to succeed in anything.
