84-year-old Shi Yide is practicing for the 20th Asia Masters Athletics Championships at Liuzhou City Stadium. More than 1,900 master athletes from 20 countries and regions will gather in Rugao, east China’s Jiangsu Province to display their skills. Shi suffered from tuberculosis in the 1990s after retirement, and started running to strengthen his pulmonary functions. In 2006, Shi began attending national competitions and won many awards. Shi Yide said, "Humanity lies in movement. Life lies in the movement. So we should go outside and it’s better than staying at home.” This year’s competition might be Shi’s last, due to age restrictions. He hopes to perform well and end his sporting career on a high note.
