First Lt. Ashley Sorensen, with the 303rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion, attempts 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, Honolulu, Hawaii, track, Sept. 23, 2013. 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.
