Age and fitness go well together

The National Steps Challenge The New Paper Big Walk this year will not be the first for retired postal service employee Kanan Gunasagaran.
He joined the Big Walk in 2000 and 2003, when it was held at the National Stadium.
Mr Gunasagaran, 82, told The New Paper: “Sadly, I do not have many photographs of these events.
“Back when I was younger and more fit, I used to walk and jog between 5km and 6km daily.

“But due to knee problems, I now cover the same distance three or four times a week instead. The exercise keeps me alert, fit and healthy.”
He wants to “encourage friends, and especially my children and grandchildren, to join me in my walks and jogs”.
