Poland’s Stanislaw Kowalski ran the 100m at age 105 in June (and in a faster time, 34.50 seconds to Miyazaki’s 42.22). Kowalski turned 105 in April. Miyazaki turned 105 on Sept. 22, one day before his Guinness World Record sprint.
So Kowalski ran his 100m before Miyazaki, at an older age and in a quicker time.
A World Masters Athletics official confirmed Kowalski’s time Saturday.
