London, Sep 28 (ANI): Four women from Australia have smashed the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels.

As many as 100 ladies and one man competed in the race, which helped raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, reports the Telegraph.

The quartet from Canberra completed a 263-foot course at Circular Quay in Sydney in about one minute and four seconds-wearing three-inch heels.

A record keeper from Guinness World Records confirmed that the women had set the record and presented them with a certificate.

The team, known as the Pinkettes, were the favourites to take first place in the charity race because they are all students at the Australian Institute of Sport.

The women - Brittney McGlone, Laura Juliff, Casey Hodges and Jessica Penny - plan to use their 6000 pounds prize for a trip to Thailand.

McGlone, a hurdling champion, said before the race that the secret to running in heels was to get up on your toes.

Darren Kelly was the only man to take part, strapping on a pair of size eight heels with regulation 3-inch heels. (ANI)
