    Fauja Singh, a British citizen who was born in India, completed the run just before 6pm local time in eight hours, 11 minutes and 5.9 seconds, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
    It was Singh's eighth marathon. He set a record in the 90-plus age category in 2003 - also in the Toronto marathon - finishing in five hours, 40 minutes and one second.
  2. Heard this on the radio this morning. He beat his own expectations of doing it in 9 hours. Remarkable.
  3. should not he compete in 100+ age category?
  4. "He has said previously that part of his secret is that he eats a light vegetarian diet of mainly tea, toast and curry."

    I think there was a big thread from peil about shunning non-veg :D
