EOD Soldier Breaks World Record

1st Lt. Ashley Sorensen of the 303rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion, 8th Military Police Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command attempted a new world record by running a mile in 11 minutes, 6 seconds, while wearing a fully functional bomb disposal suit weighing more than 75 pounds, at the University of Hawaii-Manoa track, Sept. 23. Sorensen's time bested the existing record by more than two minutes, and pending review by the Guinness Book of World Records, it will become the official record for fastest female one-mile run in an EOD bomb disposal suit.
