The 28-year-old golfer, who competed between 2015 and 2016, had a go at running the distance in a viral video with PointsBet Sportsbook.

The women’s world record for a 100m sprint is 10.49 seconds, set by American Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.

Brit Dina Asher-Smith is one of the favourites to win the women’s 100m sprint at this summer’s delayed Games as the reigning European champion.

The 25-year-old also came second at the last world championships in Doha two years ago, later winning the 200m distance.

Before her effort, Spiranac said: “I love the Olympics and watching these athletes push themselves to the absolute limit.

“And today I’m going to do the exact same – can I beat the world record in the 100m sprint with a little bit of athletic ability and zero preparation?”

Spiranac then tied her shoelaces and hair back before having a quick stretch and going for glory.

She managed to cross the line in 14.24 seconds before collapsing to the floor in exhaustion.

Spiranac then joked: “In a shocking turn of events, I did not beat the world record!

“It just shows you how amazing these athletes are.”

Spiranac has become a viral star since leaving the pro game thanks to her golf trick shots, gaining more than three million followers on Instagram.
