Tiny Dog Breaks Free from Owner, Easily Wins High School Race
A tiny, but lightning fast dog dashed from the stands onto the track at a high school meet in Logan, Utah, zooming past the human runners on the track, as the crowd cheered the canine on to "victory."
The little pooch broke loose from her owner and ran down a grass covered incline onto the track as the high school runners were in the last leg of the women's 4x200 meter relay. The four-legged-flyer quickly overtook all the runners.
From the Huffington Post:
"Holly the goldendoodle unleashed a lightning-fast sprint to overtake senior Gracie Laney, who was leading the pack at the Grizzly Invitational. Laney said she was afraid of hurting herself and stepping on the dog with her spikes. But she managed to anchor her team to a win ― at least among the humans."
And Laney further described her first place human finish for Yahoo Sports, via the Salt Lake Tribune:
“I’d say probably about the 50-meters mark, I could feel something coming on me, and I thought it was a person. I thought it was the runner. And then I kind of realized that it was really small.”
Laney later told a number of news outlets that her one regret was failing to take a selfie with her furry competitor.
