Australians set record for fastest stiletto race
SYDNEY — Four Australian women have nabbed the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels.
The quartet from the Australian capital of Canberra completed a 300-foot (100-meter) course near Sydney’s Opera House in about one minute and four seconds on Tuesday — while wearing 3-inch (7.5 centimeter) stilettos.
A record keeper from Guinness World Records confirmed the women had set the record and presented them with a certificate.
The women — known as the Pinkettes — say they plan to use their 10,000 Australian dollar ($9,600) prize for a trip to Thailand.
About 100 women — and one man — competed in the race, which helped raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
