Images of the “hot” athlete smoking while running have been making the rounds online with scores of social media users unable to believe his respiratory endurance.

The 50-year-old runner, known as Uncle Chen, had this unusual entry in the Xin’anjiang Marathon in Jiande, running the entire 26.2 miles while either smoking or lighting a cigarette, the Mirror reported.

Of course, no one disputes that smoking is not only a harmful habit but also a practice that comes in stark contrast to long-distance running, however, the 50-year-old smoker reportedly managed to complete his participation by recording the impressive record of 3 hours, 28 minutes and 45 seconds — a “good” marathon time, according to the Marathon Handbook.

As a result, Uncle Chen ranked 574th out of about 1,500 runners, according to a certificate posted on Weibo.
