Brittney McGlone can run fast in fancy shoes -- this, according to Reuters. She proved it today when she won the first-ever Stiletto Sprint at Sydney Harbour in Australia. The 18-year-old McGlone joined 264 stiletto-sporting sprinters in setting a new world record for the most women to run an 80 meter dash wearing 75mm high heels.

McGlone didn't just win, as the video below shows. She dominated. Perhaps she'll feel a bit lonely at the top, however, after she sees the video and the other runners finishing in arm-locked solidarity.
