Earlier, she had won gold medal in short puts and jyaveline.

Kaur began running at the age of 93 by his son’s word. Gurdev said, “I told mother that you don’t have any physical problem. You don’t have arthritis or any kind of heart related problem. You should start running. And now my mother is an inspiration for the aged. She tells everyone that they shouldn’t eat fast food or spicy food. She encourages her children to take part in competitions.”
