  Fastest running centenarian: Miyazaki Hidekichi sets world record

 KYOTO, Japan -- The World Masters Athletics has confirmed that Kyoto based Miyazaki Hidekichi (also known as'Golden Bolt') is the fastest running centenarian on the planet; he can complete the 100 metres track
in less than 30 seconds (29.83).

   "There's a lot of talk about all the disappeaing older people nowadays," he says, referring to the current scandal affecting Japan's census, "but I'd like to show how important it is to live a healthy lifestyle when you are older."

The Guinness world record for the Oldest windsurfer (boardsailor) was set by Otto Comanos (Australia, b. 16 November 1913, Greece), who took up windsurfing upon retirement in 1986 and regularly windsurfs two to three times a week in and around the lakes of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the Oldest person to complete a marathon: Jenny Wood-Allen (b. 1911) from Dundee, who completed the 2002 London Marathon and said to be her last aged 90 years 145 days in 11 hr 34 min.

  A native of Shizuoka prefecture, Miyazaki moved to Kyoto after retiring from his job at an agricultural cooperative to live with his daughter's family.

   To meet new friends he became a member of a Go players' club, but over the years his fellow Go enthusiasts and other friends one by one left this world.

   When he was 92 Miyazaki saw a TV program about a woman in her 90's who competed in the shot put."When I saw that, I thought, 'This is something you can enjoy even if you are alone,'" Miyazaki said. The doorway to his new life in athletics was open.

   In 2004 at the age of 93 Miyazaki entered the Masters' Championships for the first time. In 2006 he won the 100 m, his first national gold medal.
   To be honest, he was the only athlete competing in the 95-99 age group, but he nevertheless broke the goal tape running with all the passion his heart could muster and showed that dreams can come true no matter who you are.

   Last year, the 1 m 53 cm, 42 kg Miyazaki "lost 3 kg training through the vicious summer heat."

   Every morning he ran to a local park from his house and back for training, more than an hour of running.

  "In the future I want to keep pushing the limits of how much I can run," he vowed with determination.
