Japanese Sets New Record In 100m Sprint

A Japanese man has set a new record in the 100m dash and now enters the Guinness Book of Records. No, it’s not a new world record. It still belongs to Usain Bolt from Jamaica, who ran a fabulous 9.58 seconds in 2009.

Record Holder Is 105 Years Old

The new record holder comes from Japan, is called Hidekichi Miyazaki, and is an incredible 105 years old. He needed exactly 42 seconds for the 100m and that was enough for him to enter the Guinness Book of Records. He is thus the oldest sprinter to have made it into this book.

Not Satisfied With The Time

Although Hidekichi Miyazaki was very happy that he set this record, he was still not completely satisfied. He said that the time he ran was very slow and that he was usually six seconds faster in training beforehand. In his opinion, the start was to blame, because he said that he can’t hear so well anymore and he didn’t hear the starting signal properly. But he wants to keep training and then maybe next year he will try again to improve the time under 40 seconds. Maybe his great role model Usain Bolt will help him train……
