FOR THE RECORD

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

The Ja­panese re­ally do love to run: The world record for run­ning 100m on all fours (15.71) is held by Kenichi Ito. He set the record in 2015, hav­ing bro­ken it on three pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sions. Also in 2015, 105-year-old Hide­kichi Miyazaki set a Guin­ness World Record as old­est com­pet­i­tive sprinter, run­ning 100m in 42.22. How­ever, he was not happy with his time. ‘I started shed­ding tears dur­ing the race be­cause I was go­ing so slowly. Per­haps I’m get­ting old!’
