Motivation Monday: 105 year-old still competitively sprinting

Hidekichi Miyazaki, 105-year-old man, was dubbed the world’s oldest competitive sprinter after he ran a 100m race on Sept. 23 posing like Usain Bolt at the finish line.

Miyazaki turned 105 on Sept. 22 and having run 42:22 in the 100m the day after, he was given the record by The Guinness Book of World Records.

As impressive as that may be, the days-old record has already ruffled a few feathers. Apparently, there is one sprinter older than Miyazaki. Polish runner Stanislaw Kowalski, also 105, raced the 100m in June. Not only is he older than Miyazaki, he’s also faster. The Polish runner can run the 100m in 34:50.

Regardless of who is older and who is faster, to be 105 and still competitively racing is impressive enough by itself.
