Kenichi Ito, conosciuto come "The Monkey Man", ha conquistato recentemente la migliore prestazione 100 metri piani "a quattro zampe", migliarando il record precedente stabilito nel 2012. Entrambe le prestazioni sono state realizzate in occasione del ricorrere dello speciale Guinness World Records Day che si svolge ormai da 11 anni, con cadenza annuale uno speciale giorno che vede ogni volta centinaia di migliaia di tentativi nelle imprese e discipline più disparate per registrare un record nuovo in assoluto o per superarne uno già stabilito: all'insegna tutto del "famolo strano" (e più strano è meglio é).
Kenichi Ito proved how quick he was by running 100 m in 15.71 seconds. Athlete broke record on the 11th annual Guinness World Records Day.
Ito has previously set record on five occasions but was visibly moved.

Ito works as a cleaner and claims to mop the floor while on all fours to ensure he gets an adequate amount of practice using all of his limbs.
He also spent nine years studying the ways in which monkeys move to help him improve his four-limbed running technique - hence the nickname.
