Chris Johnson loses his race against a cheetah


Chris Johnson was confident he was faster than a cheetah. Turns out he wasn’t even close. The speedy Titans running back agreed to race the animal for National Geographic’s “Man v. Cheetah” and signed a confidentiality agreement so he couldn’t disclose the results. The documentary was taped at Busch Gardens’ Cheetah Run exhibit earlier this year. Rumors from the Titans camp was that Johnson had actually raced the cheetah and won but the video shows otherwise.

The cheetah was chasing something that made it run the same the course that Johnson did. Nat Geo erected a 220- foot-long course with a 10-foot-tall dividing the two. The cheetah Johnson raced had been clocked at running 62 miles an hour.

“Man vs. Cheetah” will air Friday on the National Geographic channel.
