A 105-year-old runner has broken the 100m record.
Julia Hawkins, who is nicknamed ‘Hurricane’, ran 100m in 1 minute and 2 seconds while competing in the women’s 105+ age category. She was competing in the Louisiana Senior Games.
The time was a new 100m world record at the grand age of 105-years-old!
However, the ever-competitive Julia said she was slightly disappointed with her time.
“It was wonderful to see so many family members and friends. But I wanted to do it in less than a minute,” she said after the race.
Julia took up running at age 100 after deciding to give up cycling.
