Centenarian runs marathon


For most people, 100 is too old to run a marathon. But not for one very spry gentleman. Fauja Singh, aged 100, finished the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in Toronto on 16 October 2011.

Just three days before, Singh — who’s known as “The Turbaned Tornado” — set eight world records at Scarborough’s Birchmount Stadium track for running distances as short as 100 metres to as long as 5,000 metres.
