150 yd. / m dash in 3" high heels

Did anyone see the 150 yd / m dash in 3" high heels this morning on Regis and Kelly? I did not, but got a call that Chi Chi Aduba (sp) was the winner (former Triple Jumper from Penn State) and I believe the prize was $25,000. Not bad pay for a one day event!

I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was!

Saw it, amazing. $25,000 is correct...

This has been going on in at least Germany for a few years. German vaulter Nadine Sonnabend (4.20) ran the 100m in 12 seconds in 3" stilettos to win it a couple of years back.
