WaPo: She is 105 and runs the 100 meters. How Julia Hawkins stays physically and mentally fit


November 17, 2021 - No human has run 100 meters faster than Usain Bolt’s lightning streak in 2009. He was 22.

But what will Bolt’s time be when he’s 105?

At the Louisiana Senior Games on Nov. 6, 105-year-old Julia Hawkins of Baton Rouge became the oldest woman to run the 100 meters in official competition. Clocking in at 1 minute 3 seconds, she was the only competitor in the race for people 105 and older. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2021/11/17/julia-hawkins-runs-the-100-meters/
