Here is the Usian Bolt version of tortoises which entered the Guinness records for being the fastest in its kind in the world.
According to Guinness World records, the tortoise, Bertie ‘the speedster’, sprinted a 5.48 m course in 19.59 seconds. It reached a maximum speed of 0.28 m/s breaking Charlie’s (UK) previous record of 0.125 m/s unchallenged since 1977.
Well, it’s definitely a twist in the hare and tortoise tale.
