- From the section Athletics
Hidekichi Miyazaki, aged 105, breaks his own record as the world's oldest competitive sprinter, running 100 metres in 42.22 seconds at the Kyoto Masters.
Miyazaki, known as the "Golden Bolt" for imitating Usain Bolt's famed lightning bolt pose, missed his personal best of 34.10, set when he was 103.
That record remains unbeaten for a centenarian.
