CINCINNATI, OH -- Olympians aren't the only ones setting world records.

An 11-year old cheetah at the Cincinnati Zoo has become the world’s fastest land mammal, running the 100-meter dash in 5.95 seconds.

By comparison, Sarah's 100-meter run was nearly four seconds faster than the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt of Jamaica, whose fastest time for the same distance is 9.58 seconds.

Sarah’s top speed was clocked at 61 mph.

Cameras captured the record-breaking run on Sarah’s first attempt as she chased a fluffy dog toy lure on a specially designed course certified by the Road Running Technical Council of USA Track & Field.

The documentation of the run was part of the National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative, a long-term effort to halt the decline of big cats in the wild through assessment efforts, on-the-ground conservation projects, education, economic incentive programs and a global public-awareness campaign.
