Use it or lose it! A 105-year-old Japanese man broke his record for the oldest competitive sprinter on Wednesday at a competition in Kyoto, Japan. Hidekichi Miyazaki finished a 100-meter sprint in just 42.22 seconds at the Kyoto Masters Athletics Autumn Competition, according to Guinness World Records.
There seems to be no end to these incredible centenarians in the news these days. Hidekichi Miyazaki, born September 22, 1910, recently finished a 100-meter sprint in just 42.22 seconds at the Kyoto Masters Athletics Autumn Competition.
To prove the point that it’s never too late to try something new, Hidekichi didn’t start running until he was 90. The secret of his success? Miyazaki says he exercises daily, eats in moderation and chews his food properly.
