High heels can seriously hurt a woman’s feet, legs, hips, and lower back, making it difficult for her to stand for an extended period of time while wearing them.
Women who wear high heels frequently at events or just for a day out with friends or family may encounter difficulties.
However, it so happens that a man in Spain recently set a new record for the “longest distance run while wearing high heels”.
According to Guinness World Records, 34-year-old Spanish record-breaker Christian Roberto Lopez Rodriguez, who has broken numerous world records, has now set a new record for running 100 metres in high heels.
Christian only took 3.24 seconds longer than Usain Bolt to break the world record for the 100-meter sprint, clocking in at 12.82 seconds. André Ortolf of Germany, who accomplished the record-breaking time in 2019, did so in 14.02 seconds.
Fortunately, Christian managed to finish his stunning sprint without falling over, despite the challenge of moving quickly while wearing high heels.
“The preparation was very exhaustive and specific,” Christian said. “I find it very challenging to be able to run in high heels at high speed. In Spain there are races like this, and they have always gone well for me,” he added.
Christian claimed he set this record in an effort to demonstrate that people with Type 1 diabetes, like himself, “can do as much or more things than people without diabetes.”
In addition, the record-keeping organisation noted that Christian has established other 100-meter world records.
