This amazing ‘101-year-young’ woman from Punjab will amaze you and inspire you at the same time. Man Kaur is a centenarian sprinter from Punjab who has recently won 100 metres sprint at the World Masters Games in Auckland. She has been featured among the nominees for the prestigious ‘Laureus World Best Sporting Moment of the Year 2017’ Award.
Man Kaur from Chandigarh who recently got featured as the nominee for the prestigious ‘Laureus World Best Sporting Moment of the Year 2017’, has asked the support of countrymen and sports enthusiasts around the world to vote for her in a global online poll. She is among six other contenders for this award.
Man Kaur spoke to PTI earlier and said “I feel thrilled. I am feeling the same way as any youngster would. Now, I need support of my countrymen and sports enthusiasts around the world. Vote for me,” Kaur who has a 79-year-old son Gurdev Singh said, “My mother has been featured in a new category by the Laureus World Sports awards called ‘Best Sporting Moment’. She is one of the six contenders,”
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.
