    That grass field is totally downhill! A phony world record!

    As I noted in the '09 thread, the course was actually slightly uphill, for good reason - they didnt want the cat to have to decelerate downhill. Maybe the angle of my professional videowork makes it look otherwise lol

    Come to think of it, this could be a solution to the one-false-start dilemma...

    I hear she indeed tested positive for Clenbuterol. Her lawyers are claiming she ate some tainted human.

    A close friend of mine did the certification, so I'm sure it's legit - assuming they parked the van in the right place lol.

    I have 2009 race on my blackberry - let me see if I can pull it out and post it.

    At least that sort of DQ would put the current badminton "scandal" into perspective...

    So, along the lines of Rieti, you're suggesting?

    On a more serious note, at least the course is legal. As the article states: "On a USATF-certified course established by the Cincinnati Zoo, ..."

    Question, though: was gh calling the race?

    Very impressive performance; I doubt that the cheetah would win the Olympics, though, because of the risk of false start and/or lane violation.

    Such a letdown to watch mere humans run. Wait til the greater apes take up the shot and discus.

    I was there for Sarah's 2009 record run, and lets just say the timing protocol is less than exacting. They do have a professional handling the finish, but the clock starts - by hand - when the cat jumps out of the back of a van and touches ground. At the time I offered the use of my SpeedTrap eyebeam system for the start, but they declined, preferring instead the exacting standards of a hand-start. So take it for what it's worth.
