100-Year-Old Man Completes Marathon

anada – The most impressive performance at a Toronto marathon was turned in by the man who came in last place – and is 100 years old. Fauja Singh completed the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in approximately eight hours, making him the oldest person ever to finish one of the 26.2-mile races. It was the eighth marathon for Singh, who was born India in 1911 and  did not start running marathons until he was 89, after he moved to England following the death of his wife and son.
