We are always on the lookout for a World Record that James can beat but it’s going to take a lot of training to claim this title.

A French firefighter set a new record for the fastest 100m dash, while on fire, without any oxygen. He was able to sprint the 100 meters in 17 seconds while fully engulfed in flames. And, if that wasn’t enough, he then claimed the title for the farthest distance ran while engulfed in flames at almost 900 feet! He shattered the previous records by 7 seconds in the 100 meter and over 200 feet in the distance run.
