RussiaToday : Features : Moscow girls run glamorous race

Not every woman can manage walking on high heels - and sprinting in them is way more challenging. The "High Heel Race" competition attracted about 100 eager participants, keen to prove nothing is impossible for Russian girls.

Watch the hilarious video.

Sillyness-Award cum laude!

I'd really love to be able to wear heels more than I do, but the pain of those thin soles does me in.

12 seconds for 100m is faster than I could ever do it in sport shoes.

I would love to wear high heels more than I already do, but they make me 6 foot four inches tall and EVERYONE stares when I walk down the street because how many 6 foot four women do you see every day?

Well, I'm not much shorter and it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. Isn't it part of the fun ?

This reminds me: have you noticed that Cecilia doesn't wear any high heels, especially when posing next to our president?

yes,  right away actually.

Good thing you're not married to Sarko then... I'm not talking only about the size, of course :-)

if Sarko had been married to me, there is no way he would be President today.  I would have sabotaged his political career long ago.

They don't work for me. I was told once that testosterone promotes bony ridges on joints. It's why males have bony knuckles. The same thing happens on feet and I think I've got sharp ridges that just won't work on heels. walking in heels is agony.
