Psychology student wins first German stiletto race
Sat Aug 19, 5:25 PM ET
BERLIN (AFP) - A 25-year old psychology student ran away with the first foot race down Berlin's swish Kurfuerstendamm boulevard in stiletto high heels.
It took Nadine Sonnabend just 12 seconds to run the 100 metres (328 feet) on her seven centimetre-high heels (almost three inch), said the organisers of the Stiletto Run, which is being held as part of the Global Fashion Festival.
"I much prefer tennis," admitted Nadine, as she walked off with her 10,000-euro (12,800-dollar) voucher to spend at Berlin's most prestigious department store KaDeWe, admitting that she rarely wears high heels.

Ich bin ein toejammer.
I'm faster than that.
Depends on if a bunch of my friends were chasing me with cameras to get a picture of me wearing them...:)
What were you told about running with sharp objects?
Sounds like something her competitors said at the end of the race:
"Ach -- that cur's first in, damn!"
