A Spanish man accomplished the remarkable accomplishment of running the fastest 100 meters in high heels, according to Guinness World Records.

Christian Roberto López Rodrguez, a prolific record-breaker, ran 100 meters in 12.82 seconds, according to a post the eminent record holder made on Instagram.

André Ortolf, who finished the 100-meter track in 14.02 seconds in 2019, relinquished the Guinness World Record to the 34-year-old.

Rodrguez said that jogging in heels was no easy task, saying, “The preparation was very thorough and specific.”

“I find it quite difficult to be able to sprint quickly with high heels. There are races like this in Spain, and I have always done well in them.”

The record-breaking competitors must put on stiletto high heels. They cannot run in platform shoes because the heels must be at least 7 cm (2.76 in) high and no wider than 1.5 cm (0.59 in) at the tip.

As a Type 1 diabetic, Christian claimed he set this record to demonstrate that we “can do as much or more things than people without diabetes.”

Other records that the Spaniard has set include the longest time spent balancing an object on the nose (2 hours 42 minutes), the longest time spent balancing an object on the chin (9 minutes 41 seconds), and the most stairs climbed in a row while juggling three objects (2,082).

He currently holds 57 Guinness World Records and intends to add to that number this year.
