Hidekichi Miyazaki has today once again broken his own record for Oldest competitive sprinter after running in the 100m at the Kyoto Masters Athletics Autumn Competition in Kyoto, Japan.
Miyazaki was born on 22 September 1910 and has just celebrated his 105th birthday.
The impressive centenarian finished the race in just 42.22 seconds, greeted by his proud great-grandchildren.
Speaking afterwards, perfectionist Miyazaki said: "Today my target was 35 seconds ... I shed tears of disappointment because I was not in good condition. I am not satisfied with today's time. But I am satisfied that I could cross finish line."
Nevertheless, Mr Miyazaki is often referred to as the “Golden Bolt” because he boldly imitates Usain Bolt’s renowned lightening pose.
He longs for the opportunity to challenge the legendary Jamaican sprinter (who holds the fastest 100 m record at 9.58 secs), and when asked about Bolt's recent successes at the Athletics World Championships, Miyazaki jokes: "He hasn't raced me yet!"
Guinness World Records adjudicator Kaoru Ishikawa waited on the sidelines ready to present the runner with his third official certificate and a copy of Guinness World Records 2016.
Mr Miyazaki's record is all the more incredible as he picked up the sport in his 90s, explaining that he started running as he needed a new hobby to do on his own as many of his friends that he had played the board game Go with had sadly passed away.
The Golden Bolt had previously set the record on two occasions, the first time in 2013 at the age of 103, after finishing 100m in 34.10 seconds.
He then went on to compete in the Asia Masters Athletics Championships in Kitakani, Japan last year at 104 years old, finishing in 34.61 seconds.
But age is no limit for the inspirational sprinter, who asserts he will continue and improve: "I will try my best again at coming Masters athleticsin Gifu next time."
He adds: "My secret is that 'Health comes first.",
"My inward organs in particular, are in good condition. Doctor praise it. I will now have to start working out more with this result."
