#2: Hurdle Races

If the term "flyball" brings the baseball stadium to mind, think again. In the canine world, this popular sport pits teams of dogs against each other with a series of hurdles between them and the finish line, where they press a box with a spring loaded pad to release a tennis ball that must then be returned to their handlers. Warrant, a border/staffy mix, helped lead his United States Flyball team Touch 'N Go to take the U-FLI Division 1 Champions titles in 2006 and 2007. The team is also the current world record holders for Flyball competition, with the fastest time of 15.096 seconds. Kerron Clement also broke ahead of the herd to give the U.S. Olympic team bragging rights for the world's current leading record in the 400m hurdles with a time of 47.24 seconds! Is there anything that would make you jump through (or over) hoops at that speed?
