What Women Would Do For a 10,000 Euro Shopping Spree.

No, it's not what you think. It's a high-heels race.

Hundreds of women today entered a high-heel running race, sprinting through the centre of Brussels in a bid to win a 10,000 Euro shopping spree.

Each wearing their finest stilettos many of the 'athletes' opted for matching dresses rather than sporting attire and competed in a series of 100 metre races.

Entrants in the 'Louise High Heels' event had to wear regulation high-heels that were a minimum of 7cm high and no more than 1.5 cm wide.

Despite this races lasted an average of only 15 seconds - just four and a half seconds over the world record of 10.49s set by Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.

You couldn't make a woman run in high-heels if you realesed an angry bull after her, but give them a shopping spree and they break records.
