Dr Charles Eugster gets the Record!

Dr Charles Eugster has set a new indoor World Record in the 200m for his age-group, 95 years and older. He knocked 2.4' off the previous mark set by American runner Orville Rogers in March 2013 and set a time of 55.48". The previous day he also set a new GB record for the 60m indoors, having set new GB age-group records for 100m and 200m outdoors last year.

 

And here is an interview we did with Charles Eugster, along with his trainer and fitness coach Sylvia Gattiker, in London in December 2014 in which he discusses his approach to life, fitness and the attempts on the sprinting records.

 

 

 

Later in the Year, Dr Charles will be the European Indoor Masters Athletics Championships, and the World Masters Athletics Championships, where he will be looking to set new records.
