In a surprising incident, a man in Karnataka reportedly ran faster than Usain Bolt, breaking his record. A tweet shared by a twitter user reported that a man from a small village of Moodabidri ran the traditional buffalo race, covering 142.50 meters in just 13.62 seconds.

Buffalo race 

The man is identified as Srinivas Gowda, he is 28 years old and hails from Moodabidri in Dakshina Kannada district. According to a tweet, he ran 142.5 meters in just 13.62 seconds at a “Kambala” or also named as Buffalo race, which is run over in a slushy paddy field. The stats say that he has run 100 meters in just 9.55 seconds, which is greater than Usain Bolt’s record of 9.58 seconds in 100 meters’ race.

‘Kambala’ race is a traditional race that involves buffalo. It is a traditional seasonal buffalo race in Karnataka’s Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts’ farming community.

Coming to the records, the numbers cannot be equaled with Bolt’s record as the Kambala racer was running alongside a pair of buffaloes and the speed generated was also because of the animals. But the interesting fact is that the race was run in a slushy field, which can only be a speed obstacle.
