<div class="quote-block">LONDON: Just days after registering his name in the Guinness World Record as the oldest person to complete a marathon, 100-year-old Fauja Singh has now become the oldest man to star in a PETA ad campaign.<br><br>
Singh, who made headlines around the world after completing the Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday, has joined the ranks of celebrities such as Sir Paul McCartney and Alicia Silverstone by appearing in the "I Am a Vegetarian" ad series started by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) US.<br><br>
The ad features him mid-stride and reads, "I am Fauja Singh, and I Am a Vegetarian. 100-Year-Young Marathon Runner and World Record holder".</div>

I hadn't read of his diet in any articles posted about his recent feats. Odd as if he had smoked a cigar every morning or had a shot of whiskey every night, every news outlet would be leading with such details.

Too bad Guinnes book doesn't want to accept him because he can't show his birth certificate, just a passport :/

How long is the marathon he was in? His accomplishments are on par with some of your great athletes the media frequently talks about so it's a shame you don't hear about him. Thanks for posting.

Thumbs up to this guy and thumbs way down as far as they can possibly go to PETA.
