Britney Spears is out there claiming she’s breaking a world record held by the fastest man alive, Usain Bolt. And you know what? It’s the energy we all need.
The pop star took to her Instagram account to reveal that she had run an astonishing 5.97 seconds in the 100-metre sprint.
In 2009, Jamaican former sprinter, Bolt, smashed his competitors with a time of 9.58 seconds and currently holds the men’s world record, with Florence Griffith Joyner, an American athlete running a woman’s best of 10.49 seconds in 1988.
While the post has already been removed from her Instagram account, fans wasted no time in taking screenshots, saying that Spears’ claim was the “personal highlight” of the lockdowns taking place around the world.
“Ran my first 5 !!!! Getting over your fear of pushing it in the beginning is key ….. once I did that I hit 5 !!!!! Usually I run 6 or 7 …. my first try was 9 …. and now I did it whoop !!!!! 100 meter dash !!!!! [sic],” the singer wrote.
While the evidence of this mad dash remains to be seen, fans in the comments were busy trying to wrap their head around the whole thing.
Personally, we’re hoping Spears releases a video of the attempt to keep her naysayers at bay, but really, we’re just happy that she’s using this time to better her health and fitness.
Run, Britney! Run!
