APMG 2018 Torch Run - Unity Through Sports Breathtaking sunset at the Tip of Borneo in Kudat, Sabah has given the launch of the APMG 2018 Torch Run the most beautiful sight.

The event was graced by Sabah Minister of Special Task Datuk Seri Panglima Teo Chee Kang, Mayor of Dewan Bandaraya Datuk Yeo Boon Hai, Mayor of City Council of Penang Island Ar. Yew Tung Seang, APMG's CEO Ms Linda Geh, APMG's Board of Director Dato' Danny Goon and top civil servants from Kudat, Sabah.

American tourist Amanda Collins was the lucky one who gets to hold the APMG Torch at the launch. She was so thrilled and will look at the APMG brochure and consider participating in the games in Sep. 2018.

Age is just a number Dr Charles Eugster (26 July 1919-26 April 2017), the world record-breaking masters athlete inspired many with his ‘age is just a number’ attitude when he started to run at the age of 95 and competed as a Masters athlete for Great Britain. He also restarted a career in rowing at age 63 and took up body building at 87, in addition to his running. It’s never too late to start exercising, said Dr Charles.

AGE IS NOT A LIMIT

The wonderful lady featured in the video is a living proof that age is no limit for a person to prove themselves.
.
Mann Kaur of Chandigarh, India is 102 years old, and she is an athlete. At the tender age of 101, Mann won a gold medal in the World Masters Games 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand. She competed in the 100m dash of the women’s 100 years and above category. Her victory was expected, as she was the only competitor in her category. However, it was her spirit and determination to complete the race which won her deserved accolades from all around the world.
.
For her exploits in Auckland, Mann was featured among the nominees for the prestigious “Laureus World Best Sporting Moment of the Year 2017 Award”.
.
Mann had not been an athlete all her life. She only started entering veteran competitions from the age of 92, at the urging of her 79-year-old son Gurdev Singh. When asked about the secret for staying healthy and fit, the great-grand mother said: “Eat well, eat healthy and exercise regularly. Don't eat unhealthy food and stay away from junk food. And be friends with good people."
.
Age is just a number. Just like Mann Kaur, everyone has the opportunity to be a star athlete regardless of age. The 1st Asia Pacific Masters Games (APMG) 2018 in Penang, Malaysia on Sept 7-15 offers the perfect opportunity for one to live out his/her dream in the sporting arena.
.
There are 21 sports to choose from, so sign up now at www.apmg2018.com. Hurry up to take advantage of the early bird discount for registrations, which ends on 31 January.
