Kozo Haraguchi broke the old record by almost two seconds. Article here:

I just think the story is inspiring. Perhaps you will, too.

I hope I have that much spirit when I'm his age. Very cool.

I'm not sure I could clock 22 seconds now, let alone when I get to be that age!

22 seconds! The best I could manage today was a measly, painful 30 seconds...and I'm at least 53 years younger! :blush: Wow.

Yay!!!! I found something I can beat Kelly in! The best I ever managed was a 10.9 in high school. :happy: In my advanced age of 25, I can still pull off a 13 secondish dash.

Good to see that there is actually a group keeping track of our elders that are still out there kicking rump. Way to go Haraguchi!!!

For 95, he pulls off wearing those itty-bitty track shorts a lot better than I ever could!
