"I began to run marathons when I was 68," said Gu. In 2013, he met Yin Jie, head of a running club in Ningxia, and they often exercised together.

At first, Gu didn't know much about marathons, but after training, he registered for the International Half Marathon in Hangzhou in 2013 and finished it in 1 hour, 58 minutes and 59 seconds. Since then, Gu has run several marathons across China, and began to take part in competitions abroad in 2017.
Both sides then created few chances to take one point apiece following the thrilling four-goal draw.
