104-year-old sprinter

Bloody hell ! He is faster that most of the 3rd team

A 104-year-old South African man has set a new world record for the 100 metre race.
Phillip Rabinowitz, from Cape Town, is now officially the world's fastest centenarian sprinter, reports the Daily Mirror.

He finished the 100 metres in 30.86 seconds, knocking more than five seconds off the previous best.

It's not quite the 9.74 seconds set by Asafa Powell in 2007 but Phil is 80 years older than the world record holder.

Phillip said: "I've always run and walked everywhere because when I was a kid there weren't any cars."
