As if winning the grueling Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race isn't historic enough. This year's winner, Mitch Seavey, will also go down in history as the oldest to claim a victory.

"This is for all of the gentlemen of a certain age," the 53-year-old said, as he crossed the finish line with his 10-dog team, as quoted by The Associated Press. His race time: Nine days, 7 hours, 39 minutes, AP said.
