Hidekichi Miyazaki also known as ‘Golden Bolt’ set a fresh record as the world’s oldest competitive sprinter on Wednesday, one day after turning 105. Miyazaki completed his heat with a time of 42.22. His personal record of 34.10, achieved when he was 103-years-old, remains in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Imitating the signature pose of the fastest man in the world, Jamaican Usain Bolt, Miyazaki said he would love the chance to race against the Olympic gold medallist.
- “I will say this: I’m proud of my health. My brain might not be the sharpest but physically I’m tip-top. I’ve never had any health problems. The doctors are amazed by me. I can definitely keep on running for another two or three years.”
