Incredible! See The 105-year-old Sprinter Who Sets New World Record (Photos)

Most of Hidekichi Miyazaki’s agemates are dead … but he’s still here. And not only that, he’s still sprinting like a champ. Just yesterday, a day after his 105th birthday, Hidekichi set a WORLD RECORD of the fastest ever 100 meter dash time for a person in the 105+ category… with a time of 42 seconds.
The best part of the whole thing … he busted out the LIGHTNING BOLT celebration after he crossed
the finish line … a tribute to Usain Bolt, who also sent him a shout out. In fact, Miyazaki calls himself “Golden Bolt” — and says he wants to challenge Usain to a race!

After setting the Guinness World Record, Miyazaki said, according to AFP, that his goal was 35 seconds.

“I’m not happy with the time. I started shedding tears during the race because I was going so slowly. Perhaps I’m getting old!”

His time was 32.64 seconds slower than Usain Bolt‘s all-ages world record.
