CHANDIGARH, INDIA—The octogenarian Flying Sikh gave Ontario’s most famous morning jogger a run for her money.
Premier Kathleen Wynne, here leading a trade delegation, went for a sunrise sprint with Indian track and field legend Milkha Singh at scenic Sukhna Lake on Wednesday.
“I’m in my 80s, but I still love to run,” said Singh, whose exact age is unknown, as he greeted a visibly impressed Wynne amid a throng of some 50 local journalists covering the campaign-style event.
“It’s beautiful to see you,” the charismatic former 400-metre champion told her as he presented the premier with a bouquet of flowers.
Wynne, 62, herself a one-time Ontario high-school record holder in what was then known as the 440-yard dash, joked that she “can’t run with a bouquet.”
