Fast Female Mile in a Bomb Suit

HONOLULU, Hawaii -- Explosive Ordnance Disposal officer 1st Lt. Ashley Sorensen set a new world record Monday running a mile while wearing a fully functional bomb-disposal suit weighing more than 75 pounds.

Sorensen's time of 11 minutes, 6 seconds, bested the existing record by more than two minutes. Pending review and formal validation by the Guinness Book of World Records, it will become the official record for fastest female one-mile run in an Explosive Ordnance Disposal, or EOD, bomb disposal suit.
