In the world of athletics, there are some records that seem to have been set in stone. For example, 100 metres in 9.58 seconds is Usain Bolt’s world record. But a farmer in India named Srinivas Gowda not only broke that record – but he also smashed it!

When Srinivas Gowda stepped onto the track at the Kambala buffalo race in Karnataka, India, he had no idea that he was about to make history. The 28-year-old racer clocked an impressive time of 13.62 seconds over the 145m course, breaking Usain Bolt’s world record for the 100m dash.

Gowda comes from a family of farmers. He started racing buffalo last year and is relatively unknown in the sporting world. His incredible feat has sent shockwaves around the globe and made him an overnight sensation in his home country.

While Bolt’s record still stands in the official 100m dash, Gowda’s time is unofficial as it was not set in a sanctioned event. Nevertheless, there’s no denying that he is a talented runner with immense potential.

We can’t wait to see what Gowda does next!

How did Srinivas Gowda break Usain Bolt’s record and become the fastest man in India?

Srinivas Gowda in India set a world record that was previously held by Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. He, raced for a distance of 100 meters in just 9.55 seconds.

While some may view this as a simple case of animals outperforming humans, the truth is that the buffalo racers had to put in a lot of hard work to achieve this feat. In fact, they had been training for months leading up to the event.

Racing buffaloes is not as easy as it may sound. The animals can weigh up to 1,000 kilograms and are not known for their cooperation. As such, the racers have to be incredibly strong and agile in order to control them.

What is his motivation?

The village of Mudbidri, Karnataka is home to a breed of buffaloes that are known for their speed and strength. These buffaloes are used for racing and they have been clocked at speeds of up to 60 km/hr. 

Srinivas Gowda and other buffalo racers from Mudbidri are motivated by the prize money for winning races. The prize money has increased over the years and this has drawn more and more racers to the sport. The prize money is used to support the families of the racers. It has also helped to develop the village of Mudbidri, Karnataka.

The story of the Srinivas Gowda is an inspirational. It shows that anything is possible if you set your mind!
