Lithuanian Aleksandr Sorokin accomplished a world-class feat: the 41-year-old ultrarunner broke his own world record over 100 kilometers. His own world record stood at a time of 6:09:14, but was improved to a stunning 6:05:35.
Sorokin – known as one of the most successful ultrarunners, if not the most successful ultrarunner – ran an average speed of 16.4 kilometers per hour over 100 kilometers and an average of 3:39 minutes per kilometer. The race took place in Lithuania’s capital, Vilnius. Afterwards Sorokin was very clear about his own performance: “When you complete the task and you gave everything for the final result.”
