       Hariette Thompson, a 92-year-old American woman, became the oldest woman to complete a marathon when she crossed the finish line at a race in San Diego(圣迭戈), California, on May31.
  As a cancer survivor, Thompson did have her doubts whether she could still finish a race this year, but she decided to go out all the same and do what she does every year—take part in the Rock ’n’Roll Marathon in San Diego.
  Running to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (白血病淋巴瘤学会), the mother of five finished her 16th Rock’n’Roll marathon(摇滚马拉松赛) in seven hours, 24 minutes and 36 seconds, becoming the oldest woman to run 42.195km. She was accompanied by her56-year-old son, Brenny, who took photos and videos of his great mother with his phone.
  Thompson has always liked to stay fit. When she was 76, she decided to participate in a marathon even if she had to walk the whole way. “Everybody was running [when my first race started], so I decided ‘well, I guess I’ll run, too,’” she once told reporters. “And it didn’t seem—at that time, it wasn’t so bad.”
  Her time of seven hours, seven minutes and 42 seconds in 2014 is a world record in the marathon for a woman in her age group. She has raised over $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through all these years. She missed the race only once, when she was undergoing cancer treatment.
