Man Kaur may have been the only athlete competing in her age division in the race, but she finished in 74 seconds. Not bad for someone who only started running at 96, according to Sports Illustrated.

The World Masters Games are held every four years by the International Masters Game Association for athletes over 30, in middle age and seniors, according to the organization’s website.

The next games are scheduled in Japan’s Kansai region in 2021, when some 50,000 athletes are expected to participate.
