IDA KEELING idaEven though Ida Keeling came in last place in the 100 meter race on August 12th, 2014, she took first place in the record books.

The 99-year-old great-great-grandmother from New York  finished the 100-meter race Tuesday with a time of 59.8 seconds, becoming the first woman in the 95-99 age group to have completed the event in an internationally certified race, according to her daughter, Shelley Keeling.

(In June 2012, Ida, then 97, ran the 100-meter in 51.85 at the USA Track and Field East Regional Championships.)
