101-year-old Man Kaur celebrated winning the 100 metres sprint at the World Masters Games in Auckland, the 17th gold medal in the Indian athlete's remarkable, late-blooming career.

Ms. Kaur took up athletics only eight years ago, at the tender age of 93. She had no prior sporting experience before her son Gurdev Singh suggested she join him in competing on the International Masters Games circuit.
