Japanese masters track and field competitor Hidekichi Miyazaki set a new age-group world record for the 100-meter dash on Wednesday at the Kyoto Masters Athletics Autumn Competition in Kyoto, Japan. Miyazaki, who is apparently known as “Golden Bolt,” ran the 100m in 42.22 seconds. He’s been setting records for years, but apparently he can run much faster in the 100. “I wanted to shave off a few more seconds as I got 36 seconds while training,” Miyazaki told a TV reporter.
