Animals Win the Gold

As the Olympics begin in London, it’s fun to consider how animals would compete against humans.

The BBC Nature News wrote up a list of amazing animals that, adjusted for size, could outperform humans in certain Olympic events.
•100 meter sprint would be won by the cheetah, the brown hare, or the patas monkey.
•Marathon could be run in under an hour by a pronghorn if it could sustain its peak rate that long; but humans are the ultimate long-distance runners (11/18/2004).
