World record #3

Posted: 16/3/2018

Friday 16 March 2018, Australian Institute of Sport

Six-time Paralympic Games gold medalist Michael Milton added a third world record to his glistening resume today.

In 32 degree heat, Milton ran 5km on crutches in 32:14.69, 40 seconds faster than the previous record holder.

Milton looked spent as he crossed the line after completing just over 12 laps of the 400m AIS during the annual CBR48 endurance race.

"It was tougher than I expected. Certainly the heat played a part in that. I really wish I had some gas in the tank to up the pace and break 30 minutes but it wasn't to be." said Milton.

Maybe it had something to do with running in a kilt to raise awareness for prostate cancer.

"What's under your kilt," Milton asked waiting media before the start.

"As a two-time cancer survivor, I can tell you that running 5km is way easier. If just one guy gets his prostate checked as a result of seeing me running in a kilt today, it will be well worth it."
