“Cheetah throwdown-who will be fastest alive?”

Passing up the male cheetah who thought his running record would hold -Sarah the cheetah of South Africa took up the challenge.

A male cheetah earlier this year sprinted 100 meters in 6.19 seconds. Sarah was clocked at 6.16 seconds and then 6.13 seconds respectfully for the same distance equivalent to 36 mph. .Not bad for a cheetah who grew up in captivity.

Sarah runs liek the wind

She may soon be challenged by Zaza, an 8-year-old female in South Africa either later this month or in early October.

Check out the video of her lightening sprinting abilities.

Please support the research and preservation of the cheetahs at Cheetah Conservation Fund.

Watch Sarah break the world record.
