101-Year-Old Louisiana Runner Earns A World Record [Video]
Imagine being 101-years-old and running a 50 yard dash. Kind of hard to imagine, right? Louisiana woman Julia Hawkins, who is indeed 101-years-old, just did exactly that, and such incredible fashion she has earned a world record. Oh yeah, and only started racing competitively last year...when she was 100.
Hawkins competed in the National Senior Games in Birmingham, Alabama and ran the 50 yard dash in 18.31 seconds. WHAT?!?! If that doesn't impress you, check out what she won her word record for - Julia ran the 100-yard dash in 39.62 seconds!
I'm in absolute, jaw dropping awe of you Ms. Julia. Please be my best friend now, OK?
