95-year-old dashes to world best

Mon Jun 20,12:30 PM ET

A 95-year-old Japanese man shattered the 100 meters world record in the 95-99 age group at a seniors athletics meeting Sunday, organizers said.

Kozo Haraguchi splashed through the rain to clock 22.04 seconds in Miyazaki, southern Japan, slicing almost two seconds off the previous world record of 24.01.

Five years ago, Haraguchi set a world record for the 90-94 age bracket with a time of 18.08.

After rewriting the record books again, Haraguchi modestly said he had just tried to concentrate on not falling over.

Imagine what he could have done if it wasn’t raining.

I’m going in training right now!

Do I have to wait that long?

I wonder if they check I. D.
