Stiletto sprinters' record dash


The world record for the number of high-heeled sprinters in a race has been smashed by a group of women in Australia.

Two hundred and sixty-five women took part in the 80m dash in Sydney wearing three-inch heels.

Professional hurdler Brittney McGlone easily outran her competitors, taking home $5,000 Australian dollars (2,500) and a pair of gold stilettos.
