Another hard-core centenarian

In a quick follow-up to my blog posting from yesterday, I thought I'd share this story.  I'm sure many of you remember Fauja Singh, who completed the Toronto Marathon in 2011 at age 100.  How awesome is that?  He was denied a Guiness World record as he couldn't produce a birth certificate.  This weekend he'll be hanging up his running shoes after his last race, a 10km in Hong Kong.  Good luck Mr Singh!
