Golden Girl: 101-Year-Old Woman Competes, Medals In 100-Meter Dash

It's never too late!

Man Kaur, a 101-year-old woman from India, is now a world champion runner, and we're just trying to get our steps in any way we can.

Kaur was the sole competitor in the 100+ age division at the World Masters Games in New Zealand, where she competed in the 100-meter dash. According to Sports Illustrated, it took her 74 seconds to complete the run, and since she was unopposed, she was automatically awarded the gold medal.

Kaur, who plans to compete in the shot put, javelin and 200-meter dash, started running competitively at the age of 94. Olympic legend Sergey Bubka presented the golden girl with her medal.

Kaur says that she's "never giving up" and that she's going to "keep rocking."

Kidnapped UPS Driver's Family Blames Florida Police For His Death

As an investigation kicks off involving several police officers and armed robbers, the family of Frank Ordoñez is demanding more than just answers about the father of two's tragic death.

On Thursday (Dec. 5), Ordoñez was killed when officers and two armed men exchanged gunfire in Broward County, Florida after the suspects robbed a jewelry store. Police were notified of what transpired at Regent Jewelers through a silent holdup alarm at 4:17 pm, Police Chief Edward J. Hudak Jr. told CNN.

The men identified by the Miami FBI as Lamar Alexander, 41, and Ronnie Jerome Hill, 41, left the store and hijacked Ordoñez's truck and fled at least 25 miles on the interstate. Police followed the truck as the chase was aired live on television. After coming to an intersection around 5:35 pm, the UPS truck stopped. The 27-year-old tried to escape but was killed in the gunfire the officers had with Hill and Alexander.

The FBI identifies the two deceased individuals responsible for yesterday's jewelry store robbery, carjacking/kidnapping and shootings as Lamar Alexander, 41, and Ronnie Jerome Hill, 41, both of Miami-Dade County. If anyone has information about these crimes, call 1-855-352-7233

Bystander footage revealed 11 officers were involved in the shooting with some of them using bystander vehicles to shield themselves for a better defense. An unidentified bystander was also killed in the shooting. It's currently unknown if Ordoñez and the other victim were hit with bullets from police or the armed suspects.

Ordoñez's family has shared their grief and confusion over what happened and questioned how the police reacted to the incident."For this to happen, I think, is just unnecessary," Joe Merino, his stepfather told NBC's Today show. "Other tactics should have been applied, and they weren't, so when I say the word devastated, it's an understatement."

Ordoñez's brother Roy said he "was just going to work to provide for his two little girls," by taking over someone else's shift. It was also his first time as a driver in his five-year employment with the company. Roy launched a GoFundMe to cover funeral costs as well as an education fund his brother originally had with UPS. "Please don't let my brother's death be for nothing," he said. "Police need to be held accountable." So far, the GoFundMe has raised over $50,000–well ahead of the family's request of $20,000.

His sister Genny Merino blamed the police for their brother's death."Today I lost my brother, because of the negligence and stupidity of the police," Merino posted on Twitter with a video memorial. "Instead of negotiating with a hostage situation they just shot everyone. (Including my brother) please retweet this so everyone can be aware of how stupid these cops are."

The FBI, as well as The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, are both investigating the incident.

Ordoñez's family aren't the only ones questioning the actions of the police. Supporters of the GoFundMe called out the police as well. "Que descanses en paz Hermano.... Condolencias para ti y tus seres queridos. Que mal ejemplo estas chotas de la ley de Estados Unidos valen pa puro SORPETES!!," one supporter said which translates roughly to: "May your brother rest in peace. Condolences to you and your loved ones. The law enforcement in the United States sets a bad example, purely surprised!"

Ordoñez's employer UPS was also met with criticism for praising the efforts of the law enforcement for the incident. "We are deeply saddened to learn a UPS service provider was a victim of this senseless act of violence," they said in a statement on Twitter. "We extend our condolences to the family and friends of our employees and the other innocent victims involved in this incident. We appreciate law enforcement’s service and will cooperate with the authorities as they continue the investigation."

Not sure there's a better illustration for how little your boss cares about you than UPS thanking the cops for shooting their driver to death

While UPS management bends over backwards to thank the cops for killing a worker, the Teamsters don’t mince words: “murdered while delivering packages” #1u https://t.co/IrwI2cJWjT

This is a weird way to spell “We are deeply saddened to learn Frank Ordonez, a UPS employee, was a victim of negligent police officers who murdered him and another innocent bystander today. We will ensure his family, especially his two young daughters, are financially cared for.” https://t.co/2kkRJQuB1Y

Fabolous Speaks On Previous Domestic Violence Case

In October 2018, Fabolous faced four felony charges of domestic violence against the mother of his two children and longtime partner, Emily Bustamante. Since that point, the Brooklyn rapper has remained publicly silent on his actions until a recent interview with HOT 97's "Ebro in the Morning" radio program.

Being known as a notoriously private person, Fabolous said he wasn't used to addressing or having his internal issues take on a life of its own in the spotlight. "There's going to be some speculations, there's going to be 'Oh, what really happened?' But the clarity that I was looking for was inside more than anything," he began around the 7:20-minute mark. "Because that's the people that I have to deal with every day. Those are the people that I care about, that I love, that I want to make sure that they are clear on what's going on. That's what I really focused on. I didn't really focus on what was going on the outside. I knew a lot was spiraling."

Earlier this year, the "Choosy" rapper accepted a plea deal that permits his charges to be dismissed under the condition that he remains out of the law's hands for a year. Prior to that mandate, a video surfaced that showed the tension between Fabolous, Emily, and a few of her family members. "I apologize for coming across in a light that I wouldn't want to be represented in," he continued. "People make their opinions and it's hard to, after the fact, change somebody's opinion on seeing a video of something because people still see with their own eyes and they just make their own judgement."

Prince’s Sister Sells Percentage Of His Estate To Private Equity Fund: Report

Prince’s sister has unloaded a portion of her one-sixth share in her late brother’s estate. Tyka Nelson filed court documents confirming that she sold some of the estate to Primary Wave IP Fund, The Blast reported on Monday (Dec. 3).

“I have the opportunity to consult with separate legal counsel and financial advisors and have been fully advised by my legal counsel and financial advisors of the rights I enjoy as an heir to the Estate and the legal, financial, and personal implications of entering into the Expectancy Interest Transfer Agreement,” Nelson stated in court documents obtained by the website.

At Nelson’s request, Primary Wave IP will now be involved in “all matters” regarding the estate. Primary Wave has reportedly requested to keep the details of the acquisition sealed.

Nelson allegedly owes more than $850,000 in legal bill from multiple law firms that worked on the music legend’s estate issues. Prince died without a will in 2016. His estate was split between six heirs, including Tyka and his half-siblings, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson, John Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker. Jackson, 66, died earlier this year.

Founded in 2006, Primary Wave is one of the largest independent music publishing, talent management, branding and digital marketing companies in the country. In recent years, the company has acquired the catalog of jazz great Count Basie, and a portion of Bob Marley’s music catalog.

In other Prince news, the estate recently announced a special collaboration with Call & Response, the fashion line created by Toronto design duo Cathy Robinson and Lori Marcuz who dressed the Purple One from 2011 until 2016. The collection of hand-crafted custom jackets, vest and hand-dyed tunics is inspired by Prince’s 1999 album.
