Galena Nuncio | 17 Julio, 2017, 14:17

MOST 101 year old's would be making a dash for the nursing home, but one sporty gran is running in 100-meter dashes and smashing records whilst she's at it.

A Baton Rouge woman set a record Saturday (July 15) in the 100-meter dash - and she's 101 years old. WBRZ reported that Julia "Hurricane" Hawkins' time of 40.12 seconds is a pending record for her age group, according to USA Track & Field. However, this was not his personal best.

"I$3 missed my nap for this", she said (via USATF) on Saturday at the event at Louisiana State University, not far from where Hawkins lives in Baton Rouge. To claim the official world record, her times will need to be verified. She had begun training for track and field past year.

"I'm always outside and the phone always rings, and I come running in is how I knew I could run", she told The Post last month.
