101-year-old Julia “Hurricane” Hawkins just broke a world record – and she is pretty nonchalant about it.
By running in the National Senior Games in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, the senior completed the 100-meter dash in 40.2 seconds, which is six seconds less than the previous world record for women over 100 years old..
She also became the oldest woman to compete in the USA Track and Field Outdoors Masters Championships (USATF), Good news network reports.
“[I] missed my nap for this,” she said casually, according to USATF.
“I’m always outside and the phone always rings, and I come running in is how I knew I could run,” said Hawkins last month.
