Fauja Singh – Impossible is Nothing

Fauja Singh (born April 1, 1911) is a Sikh marathon runner who is now over 100 years old. He is originally from India but has lived in the UK since 1992. He is a world-record holder in his age bracket in various sporting categories. He is Britain’s most popular Sikh in his 100′s. He has set various marathon records in the over 90′s and over 100′s categories. There are, it seems, no limits to the human spirit.

In 2004, he was featured in an advertising campaign for sportswear manufacturer Adidas.

In October 2011, Fauja Singh travelled to Canada to run in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. As preparation for the marathon, on Thursday, October 13, 2011, he ran eight world record times for his age group in less than five hours at Scarborough’s Birchmount Stadium track in Toronto (Ontario, Canada), from distances as short as 100 metres to as long as 5,000 metres.

Running the 42 or so kilometres would tax even a well-trained long- distance runner, but it seems to be just another record for Mr Singh. Remarkably, Mr Singh took up running just 11 years ago, after the death of his wife and son. Indeed, till the 1960s, when he moved to the UK, he was a farmer in India.

His timing was eight hours, 25 minutes and 16 seconds, and he came ahead of five other competitors, obviously younger to him. He had done the same course in 2003 in just five hours and forty minutes, but he was only 92 years old then.

Mr Singh says that his stamina comes from ginger curry, tea and positive thinking.

His motto is: Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from negative people, stay smiling and keep running.
