Olimpijske igre

Človek rad preverja svoje meje, da tekmuje sam s sabo ali tekmuj z drugim. Olimpijske igre so priložnost, da vidimo, kdo je trenutno najhitrejši, najmočnejši, najviše skoči. Kako pa je to pri psih? Tu je povezava na zanimiv članek Dogs Versus Humans in the Olympic Games, ki primerja najboljše svetovne tekače z našimi ljubljenci.

















  • Usain Bolt holds the world record for the 100-meter race at 9.58 seconds. A Greyhound has been measured doing that same distance in 5.02 seconds.
  • Usain Bolt also holds the world record for the 200-meter race at 19.19 seconds, as compared to the Greyhound who requires only 10.35 seconds cover the distance.
  • Michael Johnson holds the record for the 400-meter race at 43.18 seconds, which is considerably slower than a Greyhound who completes it in 21.10 seconds.
  • David Rudisha's 800-meter record of one minute and 41 seconds pales in comparison to the 50-second time for the Greyhound.
  • Hicham El Guerrouj's 1,500-meter record of three minutes and 26 seconds is sluggish in comparison to the one minute and 43 seconds time for a Greyhound.
  • Kenenisa Bekele holds the record for the 5,000-meter race at 12 minutes 37 seconds, while the Greyhound covers that distance in barely half the time at six minutes 19 seconds.
  • Kenenisa Bekele also holds the record for the 10,000-meter race at 26 minutes 18 seconds, while Greyhound can cover that distance in a mere 13 minutes and nine seconds
