95 year old Charles Eugster this weekend broke the world record for running 200 metres at the Lee Valley stadium, during the British Masters Indoor Championships this weekend. In running 55.48, the nonagenarian sliced two seconds off the previous record set by American Orville Rodgers in 2013.

Taking to Facebook afterwards, Eugster said,

“I have just broken the M95 World Record at 200m indoors! 55.38 seconds – I’m over the moon… Thank you to everyone who has helped me achieve this.”

Silver Grey Sports Club were at the event to capture Eugster’s world record on camera:
