CHEE­TAHS

Runner's World (UK) - - HUMAN RACE -

‘At the zoo, we have the fastest [land] an­i­mal ever recorded in his­tory, Sarah the chee­tah. Na­tional Ge­o­graphic filmed her run­ning 100 me­tres. She fin­ished in 5.95 sec­onds. Her top speed was 61 miles per hour. Sci­en­tists who study chee­tahs credit their great speed to their strong hind legs, which help them in­crease the num­ber of strides they take. Chee­tahs also run with their claws out, which gives them good trac­tion on the move.’
