Kaur, who took part in the sprint events on August 29, completed the 100 meters race  in one minute and 21 seconds. After finishing the race she stood smiling with her hands raised in the air.

Though she had lagged behind other runners who were in their 70s and 80s, she still picked up a gold medal as she was the only female competitor in her age category.

This Gold medal was her third top prize this week as she also won Gold in the javelin and shot put events as well.

He says that she practices in Chandigarh where she lives and goes out every evening to run short distances.
