YOU ARE THE WORLD’S FASTEST ANIMAL!
Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter, who’s an eight time Olympic gold medallist, runs at the speed of 28 mph.
So, a small reminder….DO…NOT…TRY TO OUTRUN A WILD ANIMAL.
Because if you’re Usain Bolt, you would have the chance of 56% survival against a Lion, if you tried to run….but you’re not Usain Bolt.
