This is a very inspiring story about one of the World’s oldest sprinter, Katelyn Turner.
When she was 21, she was an elite sprinter competing around the world.
Then one day, when she was sprinting for medal during the Olympics London 1948, she fell on the ground on her 5th step. It was that moment where she realised, something was wrong, her body has stopped working like it was supposed to be.
Her back pain was so bad she needed a wheelchair, she couldn’t even stand for 2 minutes, let alone run 100 metres.
By 67, she had lost two adults sons to drug-related violence. Running was the one thing that they did together when younger. Their deaths sank her into a deep depression.
So she made a promise to herself on live TV…
"The day I stop running is the day I die. I’ll dedicate my life to relieving my back pain so I can run like I did with my sons."
