Sogelau Tuvalu 100 M Sprint Video: Slow Run at 2011 Championship
Sogelau Tuvalu Had the Second-Slowest Sprint in the History of the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Athletics. Here is the Sogelau Tuvalu 100 m Sprint Video
Sogelau Tuvalu may be the slowest sprinter you'll ever see. The native of American Samoa took part in the 2011 Track and Field Championships in Daegu, South Korea and became a cult favorite after recording the second-slowest 100-meter time in World Championship history.
In Tuvalu's defense, he is not a sprinter by trade. The hulking teenager normally competes in the shot put. When he failed to qualify for the shot put competition at the 2011 IAAF Track and Field Championships, he thought he would try his hand at the 100-meter dash.
Tuvalu finished with a time of 15.66 seconds, the second-slowest 100-meter time in World Championship history. As a comparison, race winner Mohammad Noor Imran A Hadi of Malaysia got a time 10.78 seconds, a result that is hardly world-class.
In case you think Tuvalu's sprint is the worst track performance you'll ever see, you should check out this Chinese hurdler.
