The cat ran through each of the eight tracks almost along the finish line.
Cat videos are amazingly popular, but now stray cats rose to the forefront of athletics in Turkey, says Guardian. There is, of course, a video of the case.
Over the weekend, the Balkan Championships for under-20s were competed in Istanbul. The men’s 100-meter run got a confusing finish, as the stray cat would shoot on the track just as the runners were crossing the finish line. The cat ran through each of the eight tracks almost along the finish line.
The runners had to dodge so they wouldn’t hit the cat.
The race was won by Turkey Umut Uysal.
