Watch: 105-year-old woman sets new 100m record and wins gold in Vadodara
BENGALURU: 45.40 seconds. That’s the new record set by the 105-year-old Rambai in 100m at the inaugural National Open Masters Athletics Championships – conducted by the Athletics Federation of India – that concluded in Vadodara on Sunday.
The video of her effort has since gone viral on Twitter. She can be seen starting the race to loud cheers from the spectators before slowing down as she got closer to the finish line. She then ambled past it and it was enough for her to beat the national record.
