That was said and done by 90-year-old runner Stelios Prassas, one of the oldest marathon runners in the world, who finished today in the 38th Authentic Athens Marathon.
“Day by day I am in the stadium, and I do 8 to 10 kilometers,” he said in a recent interview, revealing that he has never had a coach, throughout his long career.
“Man must love what he does, do it and love it very much. I feel great love when I go to the stadium to train. Fills me. My heart feels so happy that I am in the stadium “.
He himself started the marathons at an old age, 59-60 years old, at the urging of an acquaintance: “A neighbor told me, do not go to Agios Kosmas and play ball (…) He sent me to the stadium”.
According to the local iRafina.gr, Mr. Prassas is an athlete from Telmissos Nea Makri, holds a record and has been awarded by SEGAS as the oldest active marathon runner who participates in the Athens Classic Marathon.
