Fauja Singh to participate in the Australian marathon on January 25


The world's oldest marathon runner Fauja Singh said that he would hang his boots after the Australian marathon that kicks off on January 25. " I am participating in the Australian marathon, which will be the last one I will be participating in," the 101 year-old told during a visit to Nankana Sahib Public School, Gill Park.

As for his physical fitness, the centenarian said he did not suffer from any disease and did not take any medicine. " The reason for my good health is that I exercise daily and follow a proper diet regime. Nowadays, people are more interested in going to a gym, but I feel that if they exercise regularly on their own they can be physically and mentally strong. Daily exercise will keep you away from all diseases," Singh remarked.

That Fauja Singh is quite capable of captivating the imagination of young impressionable minds was quite evident from his visit to the school.
