How fast can a wombat run?

Recommended Posts

If you were assigning animals to sporting contests based on looks alone, you wouldn’t send a wombat to track and field. With short legs and a mighty butt, wrestling might be a more obvious choice, or perhaps weightlifting. Yet wombats can produce a surprising turn of speed. Some even propose carrots strategically placed at the finish line could have led to a very surprising outcome if someone had smuggled a wombat into the stadium at the Sydney Olympics just before the 100 meters was run.
