    A 101-year-old man has his sights on the London Marathon in a bid to become the world's oldest competitive runner.

    This is something i found quite extraordinary to see a person his age attempting to run the marathon. I saw him on the news today and i was astonished to see him he put a big grin on my face. Good for him I hope you do well.

    No fucking way, he might walk it in lie 9 hours but he won't run over 26 miles. Not a fucking chance in your pants.

    Totally agree, but then anyone who finishes in over 6 hours is basically walking .
    I do like his attitude though.

    ďIíve said Iíll attempt it,Ē he told Reuters by telephone from his workplace at Pimlico Plumbers. ďI havenít said Iíll complete it. If I do make it, all the better. I hadnít thought of doing it before but someone asked me and the money goes to charity so why not?Ē
    His sponsorship money will go to the Rhys Daniels Trust, which provides temporary accommodation for families of patients in specialist childrenís hospitals.
    ďIf I finish, Iíll do what I always do and have a pint and a fag,Ē he said. ďPeople ask what is my secret but I havenít got one. They say fags and booze are bad for youóbut Iím still here, arenít I?Ē

    It's not even a particularly brisk walk.
