100-year-old marathoner finishes Toronto race By Associated Press

TORONTO -- A 100-year-old runner became the oldest person to complete a full-distance marathon when he finished the race in Toronto on Sunday.
Fauja Singh earned a spot in the Guiness World Book of Records for his accomplishment.
It took Singh more than eight hours to cross the finish line -- more than six hours after Kenya's Kenneth Mungara won the event for the fourth straight year -- and he was the last competitor to complete the course. But his time wasn't nearly as remarkable as the accomplishment.
Event workers dismantled the barricades along the finish line and took down sponsor banners even as Singh made his way up the final few hundred yards of the race.
Family, friends and supporters greeted Singh when he finished the race.
"Beating his original prediction, he's overjoyed," his coach and translator Harmander Singh said. "Earlier, just before we came around the (final) corner, he said, 'Achieving this will be like getting married again.'
"He's absolutely overjoyed, he's achieved his lifelong wish."
Sunday's run was Singh's eighth marathon -- he ran his first at age 89 -- and wasn't the first time he set a record.
In the 2003 Toronto event, he set the mark in the 90-plus category, finishing the race in 5 hours, 40 minutes and 1 second.
And on Thursday in Toronto, Singh broke world records for runners older than 100 in eight different distances ranging from 100 meters to 5,000 meters.
The 5-foot-8 Singh said he's hopeful his next project will be participating in the torch relay for the 2012 London Games. He carried the torch during the relay for the 2004 Athens Games.

Russia on the move...

At the 2011 Chicago Marathon, Russian Superstar Runner, Lilliya Shobukhova, won this race for the third straight year. This was the 2nd fastest female time in marathon history. She also set a personal and National Russian Record and is qualified for the 2012 London Olympics. There Lilliya will race against Paula Radcliffe of England, the current World Recorded holder. Lilliya won over $600000 plus US dollars for 2 Hours and 18 minutes of work.

Why is this on this forum...this is extreme and excellence, just like us!!!!
My Olympic Prediction...Shobukhova will get the gold!!!!

Powerlifters are crazy...but their NUTS!!!

The two on the right are Ana and Fred, two IRONMAN finishers of the September 11, 2011 Madison Wisconsin IRONMAN series. It starts out with a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike race, and a 24.2 mile sprint, all in a row. For Ana 16 hours straight, no naps, no breaks, and definitely no backing down.

My take: International Sportsman Status for both...BADASS and I like them both!!!!

PS...entry fee was about 600 American dollars...
