Australia teeters into record books



The world record for the number of people running a race while wearing stilettos has been broken in Australia.

A total of 265 competitors, including some few men, dashed their way around an 80m track at Sydney's Circular Quay wearing three-inch heels.
The race was won by 400 metre professional hurdler Brittney McGlone by several clear lengths who took home £2,500, and a pair of gold stilettos.

The 18-year-old left the other competitors in her wake as many fell, suffering scratches and scrapes to knees and hands.

Other sprinters had to be treated for bruises, it was reported.

Former Australian sprinter Melinda Gainsford-Taylor inspected the athletes and ensured they were wearing the mandatory three-inch heels.
"All the girls were pumped," she told Australian media.

"I don't think I've experienced such energy since my racing days,"
Australia's Age reported her as saying.
A spokeswoman for the event said the world record had topped the previous world record of 150 which was made in Holland.
