Even The Best Human Athletes Would Pale In Comparison To Animals

Just be glad the animal kingdom is sitting out the Olympics.

If humans competed against the animal kingdom in the Olympics, we'd hear the beasts' national anthem a heckuva lot.

As a new video by Shutterstock points out, a cheetah can cover 100 meters in less than six seconds while that distance took 9.58 seconds for the world's fastest human, Usain Bolt. We wouldn't fare much better in the water, either. Human swimmers may employ a "dolphin kick," but we'd trail far behind dolphins in an actual race.

Still, there are "striking similarities" between man and beast, and we have to say this clip takes home the gold in capturing them.

Just remember to never challenge a wildebeest to an endurance run.
