小编摘要:100岁的英国老人参加马拉松,你能想像吗?这位精神矍铄、充满拼搏精神的长者实在让人肃然起敬。

导读:1911年出生于印度的英国百岁老人 Fauja Singh已经创造了8项世界跑步纪录,日前他报名参加了多伦多市的马拉松比赛,意欲再创吉尼斯世界纪录。在他的妻儿辞世之后,他89岁起开始参加赛跑,他的翻译兼教练Harmandar Singh 说,赛跑让他重新找回了生活的重心。

Fauja Singh, a 100-year-old British man, has run his way to eight running world records and is aiming to set another, when he takes part in the Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

Mr Singh broke the records for 100-year-old men in eight distances from 100m to 5,000m on Thursday. Guinness World Records will be on hand on Sunday to document his attempt at completing a full marathon distance.

Born in India in 1911, he started competitive running at the age of 89, after losing his wife and son.

His translator and coach Harmandar Singh said that ''running has given him a new focus in life''.
