world records

One of the exciting stories going into the London Marathon was a 101-year-old man's attempt to run it. He would be the oldest man to have ever run the distance. Now it appears the record is in doubt. Still, there were a number of records set on Sunday. From the London Times:
A number of world records were set at yesterday’s marathon, including the fastest time for those dressed as a film character, Santa, fireman and clown. However, four men attempting to break the world record for fastest marathon dressed as a superhero were not so super. None bettered the record of 3 hours, 4 minutes and five seconds.
