MELBOURNE- Australia's Charlie Booth, 99, won the 100 metres sprint at the World Masters Games on Tuesday before announcing his retirement from the sport.
Booth, the only competitor in the 95-99 age group, warmed up for his event with a fried dim sum snack at Melbourne's Olympic Park before winning in a tick over 28 seconds.“Incidentally, that’s my last race,” Booth told reporters. “You can keep fit - one beer and one woman.”
Competitors range in age from 25 to 99.
