He's nicknamed the Turbaned-tornado! At 101-years-old, Fauja Singh has completed nine marathons, and this past weekend, he ran his last race in Hong Kong. He'll be turning 102 soon, and decided it’s time to retire.

This weekend, Singh ran his last race-- a 10K, four-minutes faster than when he ran the race last year.
