New World Record: Fastest 100m in Ski Boots

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
[Disclaimer - this was my idea and I helped Profeet put it together, but sharing as I can't see it mentioned on Snowheads yet and it's a great story.]

How fast do you think you could run 100m in ski boots? Two employees from Profeet - the ski boot fitting specialists in London - have set new world records...for the fastest 100m while wearing ski boots!

Max Willcocks broke the existing record (yes there was one!) with a time of 14:09 seconds and Emma Kirk-Odunubi set an inaugural women's record of 16:86.



Snowheads will know their boots, so will have spotted the Atomic Backlands in the picture above. They are light ski touring boots, easier to run in than regular boots, but still damn hard work! You can read full details about their attempt here and watch them in action in this video:

Maybe they could have got even faster times if they used NTN (so no duckbill) telemark boots! Toofy Grin

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Don't let the Tour Operators know, as in their description, they will reduce the time it takes to go from the Hotel to the Lifts by three quarters. Everywhere will be beside the Lifts! Toofy Grin

Wow, training to make sure you get that last navette. However I did note they were not carrying skis and poles so it is probably an invalid record. There may be other records for dragging a small child a long as well

....like how many people you can hit in the face, as you walk along with your skis over your shoulder!

Perhaps someone should suggest to @CEM that he needs to take on the competition and beat the record. Wink

Someone brave

Yup, next time with skis and poles then...how many tour ops require you to run at the speed to make the chalet 'only 2 minutes to the lifts'... Very Happy

Hmm. Touring boots tho.... what would the time be with a set of full-on alpine race boots ? What about leather tele boots ?
