SYDNEY: Four Australian women have nabbed the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels.

They completed an 80m course in about one minute and four seconds yesterday while wearing 7.5cm stilettos. A record keeper from Guinness World Records confirmed the women’s record and presented them with a certificate.

The women plan to use their US$9,600 prize for a trip to Thailand. AP
