Oldest female athlete of India at 103 years of age: Mann Kaur, Punjab


Mann Kaur of Patiala is India’s oldest female athlete. She is 103 years old. Mann Kaur ji started her athletic career at the age of 93. Like a mother forces her kid to complete his homework, in the same way Mann Kaur’s son, Gurudev, compelled her. Gurudev is 78 years old and has already participated in World Masters Games. It is considered to be the Olympics for senior citizens. He thought that if he could do it, so could his mother. Gurudev used to participate in games enthusiastically. One day he asked Mann Kaur to run with him and she ran with him. One thing the gurudev was sure of was that his mother is perfectly fit and healthy and she did not have any health problems. She did not even visit doctors.
She completed a 100 metre track in 1 minute and 1 second when she ran for the first time . Now she participates in 100 metre, 200 metre and other competitions. And just like that she wore her running shoes and got down on the track. Her record is also astonishing. 100 metre race in 1 minute and 9 seconds, 200 metre race in 2 minutes and 39 seconds, 400 metre race in 6 minutes and 10 seconds, javelin throw of 5.13 meters. She has won more than 20 medals in competitions like America Masters Games and World Masters Games. Most shocking fact is that 101 years old Mann Kaur has achieved these feats for her nation in the last eight years only.
She started participating in veteran events at the age of 93 years. Other elderly people take to the cot at this age. But hats off to her that she has put aside this cot. She is performing so well at the age of 103 years and bringing glory to Punjab and India. Even the military men can not do the swing of arms and legs which she can do at such an age. Preserving such mobility at 103 years of age can just be called a wonder of nature. Her enthusiasm has shocked youngsters. Most astounding is the discipline and will power she beholds.
