Centenarian breaks 100-metre world record

NDTV – After breaking one sprinting world record as a 76-year-old, Lester Wright took part in a track and field event on Saturday after more than two decades. And even at the age of 100, he held his own against other racers who were in their eighties. Not only Wright finished the race, he didn’t come last and even set a record for centenarians.

According to The Guardian, Wright was competing at the Penn Relays, America’s oldest track and field meet, when he surged over the line in a time of 26.34 seconds, breaking Donald Pellmann’s mark of 26.99 set in 2015.
