WATCH: Ken Broo talks to local Badwater Ultramarathon winner Harvey Lewis

CINCINNATI -- Seven minutes seems like nothing to Harvey Lewis.

The Cincinnati native rose to fame July 22 when he finished the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon in a record-setting time of 23 hours, 52 minutes and 55 seconds.

The race, which is run through the Asna Boerrego desert and includes three mountains, is one of the most grueling competitions in sports. Beyond the incredible distance, runners at Badwater must contend with wide-ranging temperatures.

Many consider Badwater the world's toughest foot race.

On Sunday, the Cincinnati School of Performing and Creative Arts social study teacher spent seven minutes talking to WCPO's Ken Broo during a segment of Sports Of All Sorts.
