India will rise and shine the Indic way!
100 meters in just 9.55 sec is an amazing feat. Proper training to Srinivas Gowda will definitely help him to make name for the country. My best wishes.@KirenRijiju @CTRavi_BJP https://t.co/ImgR3W1v4W pic.twitter.com/2zaUTBpLYo

What a dream run !! Absolutely thrilling feat by Srinivas Gowda from Karnataka who ran like the wind with his buffaloes in the local buffalo race‘ Kambala’. He is being compared to the Olympic gold medallist sprinter Usain Bolt. @incredibleindia pic.twitter.com/tbPxu4JSOu

Source: A CONSTRUCTION worker from India has allegedly beaten Usain Bolt’s 100 metre sprint record – with the help of two huge buffaloes.Srinivasa Gowda, from Karnataka, has since been called up for national trials after he set an incredible time of 9.55 seconds.
The 28-year-old was taking part in Kambala – where people sprint 142m through paddy fields while holding onto two bufffaloes.He thrashed his opponent as he covered a distance of 145 metres in just 13.62 seconds.And he sped through the first 100 metres in just 9.55 seconds – which is 0.03 seconds quicker than Bolt’s record.
As a result of his incredible performance, Gowda has now been called up for trials by India’s Sports Ministry.Union Minister Kiren Rijiu posted a picture of the 28-year-old in action as he vowed to train him up with the top coaches in the country.
Alright, I am not sure if I am confused here or just not getting this. Is his speed being helped by the Buffaloes or not? Either way, he is running on a wet slushy field. Imagine if this guy is legit for a minute how cool this story would be. He runs with these buffaloes faster than Usain Bolt. Later he goes to the Olympics, wins the gold medal by breaking the world record and becoming the world champion. He makes $100s of millions of dollars in endorsements and it would have all started with this viral video. This would be even a better movie than “Cool Runnings” (Jamaican Bobsled Team). Will this happen? Probably not. But it’s fun to dream.
