The 101-year-old athlete, Mann Kaur, on 27 April 2017 became the oldest person to sky perambulate Auckland's famous landmark Sky Tower.

Having set a different world record about the field, Kaur stepped out 192 metres above Auckland city to offer the feat.

The athlete from India held her 79-year-old son Gurdev Singh's hand as she inched around the narrow platform towering high above the neighborhood centre.

On 26 April 2017, Kaur broke the Guinness World Record for javelin having throw of 5 m 12 in their own final competition in the Trusts Stadium in Waitakere, west Auckland.

Earlier on 24 April 2017, the athlete clinched the 100 metres sprint in the World Masters Games locked in Auckland, New Zealand.
