This 105 Year Old Man Just Broke The World Sprint Record for Oldest Participant

What?!? This man is a boss. Hidekichi Miyazaki started taking up running as a 90 year old. Yes, he started running at the age of 90. He is a prime example that age seriously does not matter, if you persist, you can do it.

Doctors have described him as a medical miracle, and we can see why. He has become the worlds oldest competitive sprinter, and he just broke his own 100m record!

His final time was 42.22, but for this man, that time just wasn’t good enough.10508213_1652317945053730_413606800_n

“I wanted to shave off a few more seconds, as I ran it in 36 seconds during training,” Miyazaki told reporters after the competition in Kyoto.

His nick name is The Golden Bolt, respectively named after Usain Bolt, one of the fastest men of all time.
