New Record for 'Wings for Life' World Champion Lemawork Ketema

Watched by millions of TV viewers around the globe Lemawork Ketema successfully defended his Wings for Life * title and broke his own 2014 world record with a run of 79.9 kms (49.65 miles) in St. Poelten, Austria.

The event attracted 109,000 runners in 35 venues on 6 continents who competed against Red Bull Catcher Cars. The last person left running being the winner.

The photo of Lemawork below was taken early in 2014 when he joined me for a relaxed run through the Lainzer Tiergarten, a wildlife park, in Vienna.

Event co-ordinator Colin Jackson said that entries are already being taken for the 2016 race.
