With a saffron turban and a flowing white beard, 101-year-old Fauja Singh finished a 10-kilometer (6.25 mile) race in Hong Kong. Nicknamed the Turbaned Torpedo, the Indian-born runner finished the race in 1 hour, 32 minutes and 28 seconds. Singh says he will now hang up his sneakers. “I will remember this day.
