Four Australian women from Canberra have set the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels.
The quartet completed an 80m course near Sydney's Opera House in about one minute and four seconds yesterday while wearing 7.5cm stilettos. A record keeper from Guinness World Records presented them with a certificate. The women - known as the Pinkettes - say they plan to use their AU$10,000 ($12,700) prize for a trip to Thailand.
About 100 women and a man competed in the race, which helped raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. AP
