Animals in Motion   

1     Do you believe animals can move better than we can? It is true. Read on to see why!
 
2     Michael Johnson is one of the fastest humans on Earth. When he ran the 200-meter race at the 1996 Olympics, he did it in 19.32 seconds. That amazing speed is his personal best. It was also the world record for twelve years. If cheetahs had joined in, Michael Johnson would have lost the race and the gold medal. That is because cheetahs would have crossed the finish line 13 seconds before Michael Johnson.
 
3     So we are not very good runners. How do we do in other ways of moving around?
