Ida Keeling, 100, set the world record for her age group by completing the 100-meter dash on Saturday at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia in 1 minute and 17.33 seconds in an incredible performance.
“If you’ve got a will, you’ll find a way,” said Keeling afterwards. The soon-to-be 101-year-old’s record-breaking performance was the fastest time by any athlete in her 100-plus age group.

As if to show that she had plenty left in the tank after the race, Keeling did several push-ups and stretches with relative ease.
“I don’t want to let nobody drag me down,” Keeling said, according to a report on Bleacher Report.
