Look out, Usain Bolt! Three sumo wrestlers show off their sprinting kills on the track.
Usain Bolt has already been defeated by a child this month, so three sumo wrestlers looked to take the title of fastest men on earth by racing less than 100-meters on the track.
Wrestlers Kento Amakaze, Tatsuaki Kaiho and Kanata Takatenshu decided to take to the track and race each other fully clad in their competition outfits.
Sprinting is getting stronger in Japan on both ends of the age spectrum as 16-year-old Sani Brown broke Usain Bolt's Youth World Championship record in the 200-meters in July and 105-year-old Hidekichi Miyazaki ran an impressive 100-meter time, which many believe to be world record for a centennial runner.
Don't blink as you watch the three wrestlers take off, not because they're moving very fast but because you might miss the action. The race is literally over in less than 100-meters.
The runner in the middle looks to hold on for the victory in a tight finish as the wrestler closest to the outside of the track can't kick enough for the victory. The runner-up's mawashi, the 30-foot belt used to clothe the athletes, also manages to hang on until the finish.
