Blind woman runs 12 hours on treadmill, sets world record

A blind woman from Ireland has left everyone stunned by running an amazing 130-5-km, or 81.09 miles, for 12 straight hours. It has won her a place in the Guinness World Records.

35-year-old Sinead Kane, who has 5% vision, ran 130.5-km, which is the same as three marathons.

The record for the greatest distance run on a treadmill in 12 hours for a female, was earlier broken by Sinead as well, by 1.88 km.

She also holds the record of being the first blind female to run a marathon on all seven continents within a timeframe of seven days. Sinead said she wanted to take on his challenge to change preconceptions about disabled people.
