Srivisana Gowda, a Kambala jockey (traditional buffalo race) from Moodabidri in Karnataka India have just set a new record as the fastest runner in the history of the traditional sport – where he might have beaten Usain Bolt’s 100-metre Olympic time of 9.58 seconds in 2009.

Srivisana Gowda, who is a construction worker, took just 13.62 seconds to cover the distance of 142.4 metres.
