    Nice attempt. Couple things: 1. Didn't see you finish. Seems like he stopped the watch early, based on the sound of you running, but we can't be sure since we didn't see you cross the line. World record can't be established. 2. Hard to watch sideways. Need a better camera crew. Basically it's a do-over, I think.
