That's a fast Granny!

Anytime you'll see an Irish Granny run faster than this, it's to turn up the volume on the death notices and air punch when she's not on it!

However, if you're a Granny from Louisiana who still has a pep in her step then this is what you do!

Julia “Hurricane” Hawkins set a new World Record for the 100 metre dash at the Senior Games taking place in America this week.

This real life Supergran managed to complete the race in a false-teeth popping speed of 46.07 seconds.

The former school teacher raced 50 meters on Monday and set another Senior Games record for women over 100, with a time of 21.06.

As she says in this news report, “I hope I’m inspiring people to be healthy and realize you can still be doing it at this kind of an age. Everyday when you’re 103 is a miracle.”

Julia started running at 101 years old! So, folks it's NEVER too late to get active!
