SYDNEY, Australia--Four Australian women from Canberra : Brittney McGlone, Laura Juliff, Casey Hodges and Jessica Penny (known as the Pinkettes) completed a 263-foot (80-meter) course near Sydney's Opera House in about one minute and four seconds while wearing 3-inch (7.5 centimeter) stilettos
- setting the new world record for the Fastest relay race in stiletto heels. The women — known as the Pinkettes — say they plan to use their 10,000 Australian dollar ($9,600) prize for a trip to Thailand.

A record keeper from Guinness World Records presented them with a certificate.
Miss McGlone, a hurdling champion, said before the race that the secret to running in heels was to get up on your toes. About 100 women — and one man — competed in the race, which helped raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Darren Kelly was the only man to take part, strapping on a pair of size eight heels with regulation 3-inch heels.
Former Miss Australia
Erin McNaught was on hand to ensure that all heels measured at least 7.5cm - and that everyone's legs were sufficiently smooth (except for Darren's, that is). A cheque for $20,000 was presented to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, $1000 of which was raised on the day.
