Video: Watch 105-year-old break 100m world record

The determined Hidekichi Miyazak, at the tender age of 105, broke a world record this week but he still wasn't happy!

The Japanese sprinter's record was broken by an American athlete last weekend so he responded the only way he knew how - by breaking it again during the week.

Miyazak turned 105 on Tuesday and on Wednesday, he ran the 100m in 42.22 seconds.

“I’m not happy with the time,” Miyazaki said, according to AFP. “I started shedding tears during the race because I was going so slowly. Perhaps I’m getting old!”
