Former British speedman Dwain Chambers has just made an impossible challenge, racing a 100m race with the heat race horse Heat Storm and amazingly, who won the horse racing.
This match just took place at the Wolverhampton Racecourse, England, on 13.3. The Heat Storm horse is in the process of training preparing to compete at the Cheltenham Festival.
Meanwhile, former Chambers athletes no longer at the peak of his career despite competing with lightning Usain Bolt at the 100m run at the World Championships in 2009.
Chambers also participated in two Olympics, once in fourth place, 100m in Sydney 2000 and in the semi-finals with content in London 2012. Despite this, Chambers’s ability to outperform the battle is something no one believes. However, this utopia has been proven really: Chambers won the horse race Heat Storm in the distance of running 100m when finishing first with a record of 10.36 seconds.
After the race, Chambers said that he was really worried and he thought that how humans could win one of the fastest running animals in the world. He added: “However, when I entered the race, I sprinted as fast as I could because I thought that the racing horse would not have the same quick start as a human. Creating this advantage, I could feel the hooves of horses right behind me. But because of the short distance, it was a difference for me to speed forward”.
According to Chambers, humans can only win horses-like animals in such challenges at a short distance, but longer than impossible.
In track and field, there were athletes who beat high-speed animals like race horses. The most famous was the 100-meter race between legendary American athlete Jesse Owens with a horse race in 1940. At that time, Mr. Owens won this race by understanding the horse’s ability to start slower than humans and it is often startled immediately after gunfire starts and then runs. Mr. Owens took advantage of this knowledge to prevail to compensate for the distance that will be lost in the last 30 m as horses race to speed the finish line first.
