For Guinness World Record Day on Thursday, there were a variety of new records broken. Over the last several years, Guinness World Records has celebrated one day each year for those people who want to try for the record books in unusual fashion. Thursday, Kenichi Ito did it his way. He ran 100 meters on all fours to break the world record. The 30-year-old has been training for more than a decade to break the record, and smashed his own record by more than a half-second. He completed the run in 16.87 seconds, breaking the previous mark of 17.47 that he set in 2012. It looks unnatural to run on all fours, but I’d also say Ito looks like an athlete. It’s obvious he’s been practicing. He was very emotional afterwards. Any chance this event ever makes into the Olympics? Seems odd to be running like chimpanzees, since humans can run pretty darn well upright. Maybe, there will end up a whole new counterculture of people living their lives on all fours. More records can be checked out on Guinnessworldrecords.com or by clicking here.
