There were 3 world records set today at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
73-year old Ed Whitlock breaks his own 2003 marathon world record for age 70+ by nearly 5 minutes, clocking an amazing 2:54:48. Fauja Singh, 93, clocks 2:30:02 for the half marathon to set another world record for 90+. Michal Kapral gets into the Guinness Book of World Records for "Pram-Pushers", wheeling 20-month-old daughter through full marathon in 2:49:43.
Let's talk about Fauja Singh for a minute. He ran a half-marathon, that's 21.1 km, lots of hard work, many hours of training, a feat not many people half his age, or even a quarter of his age can do, and why am I harping on it you ask?? Well, because I KICKED HIS ASS!! Booyah!
