Julia Hawkins' personal bets is 39.62

Just off the top of your head, what do you suppose the record is in the 100-meter dash for women age 100 and up?

A Baton Rouge woman set a record Saturday (July 15) in the 100-meter dash - and she's 101 years old. With this record she has become the oldest female athlete ever to compete in the USA Track and Field Outdoors Masters Championships. However, this was not his personal best.

"I missed my nap for this", Hawkins hilariously said at the event. Neither time has been certified yet, but provided that happens, Hawkins will hold a world record.

Hawkins is a natural talent.

"I knew I could do it because I'm in the yard a lot and I keep hearing the phone and come running in to get it", Hawkins said ahead of the race, according to the story. "I thought it'd be fun to run 100 meters since I'm more than 100 years old".

Hawkins, who was born in Wisconsin in 1916, said she likes "the feeling of being independent", as well as the challenge. She says her secret to living a long life is family, eating healthy, and exercising. She has four children, three grandchildren and one great grandchild she likes to impress, she told the Washington Post.
