A man racing a Cheetah! Can you believe this? It was a real stunt performed by South Africa's flying winger Bryan Habana, for a promotion. Habana is regarded as the fastest rugby player on the planet, who can run 100m in 11 seconds. But organisers decided even he needed help against an animal which can accelerate from 0-60mph in three seconds and has a top speed of 70mph. So, they gave him a 30m head start.
The cheetah was chasing a leg of lamb propelled in front of it and a man with a tranquiliser gun was on hand to stop unwanted situation! But, it was never required and the race was a draw! Link
