    A 92-year-old cancer survivor is seeking to become the oldest woman to finish a marathon.

    一名92歲的癌症存活者,正試圖成為跑完馬拉松的最年長女性。

    Harriette Thompson of Charlotte, North Carolina, is competing in the Rock `n’ Roll Marathon in San Diego that began Sunday morning.

    來自北卡羅萊納州夏洛特的哈莉雅特.湯普森參加聖地牙哥週日早上舉行的搖滾馬拉松比賽。

    “I have no idea if I’m going to be able to do it, but I’m going to try,’’ Thompson said at a news conference on Friday.

    「我不知道自己是否有能力完成,但我會努力嘗試,」湯普森在週五的記者會上說。

    It will be her 16th time running it, and last year she set a record when she finished the race in 7 hours, 7 minutes and 42 seconds, beating the previous record for a woman 90 or older by more than an hour and a half.

    這是她第16次跑該馬拉松賽,去年她以7小時7分42秒跑完全程,超越先前的90歲以上女性紀錄逾1.5小時,而締造新猷。

    Thompson is a two-time cancer survivor who dealt with the loss of her husband and a staph infection in her legs while training for this year’s race.

    湯普森是癌症兩度復發的存活者,在為今年的比賽而接受訓練期間,她經歷了丈夫的過世以及腿部感染金黃色葡萄球菌等問題。

    A classically trained pianist who played three times at Carnegie Hall, Thompson says she mentally plays old piano pieces she had performed to help her get through the 42.2 kilometers.

    湯普森是正統訓練出身的鋼琴家,曾3度在卡內基音樂廳演奏,她說,心裡彈奏曾演奏的老鋼琴曲目,幫助她跑玩42.2公里的路程。

    The oldest woman to complete a marathon was Gladys Burrill, who was 92 years and 19 days old when she finished the 2010 Honolulu Marathon. Thompson will be 92 years and 65 days old on Sunday, according to race organizers. (AP)

    根據比賽主辦單位,完成馬拉松路跑最年長女性是葛蕾迪絲.布里爾,2010年她跑完檀香山馬拉松時高齡92歲又16天,湯普森在週日將是92歲又65天。( 美聯社)
