The new Usain Bolt comes from India and is the king of racing with buffalo
Obviously their brands have a trick, but that is why the Indian Srinivas Gowda has less value or what he does is without merit. Nicknamed already as the ‘Usain Bolt Indian’, This construction worker managed to set a new record in a “kambala” buffalo race, a peculiar sport of the Karnataka state where 142 meters are run through rice paddies and in the company of buffalo.
Apparently, according to the chronicles of the region, Gowda completed the tour in an amazing time of 13:42 seconds, a real barbarity. It should be remembered that the world record of Bolt in the 100 meters is in force at 9:58 and although obviously no minimally comparable parallelism can be established, the milestone of this “amateur” runner has astonished the Asian country.
"They (in Olympic athletic competitions) have more scientific methods and better electronic equipment to measure speed," Professor K. Gunapala Kadamba, president of the Kambala Academy, told the BBC.
"I was interested because I used to see kambala during my school days," said the protagonist of this rocambolesque story also to BBC microphones.
Kambala, which can be translated as “paddy mud field” in the local Tulu language, is a traditional sport that originates in part from the Karnataka coast.
Participants run through a field, which is normally 132 m or 142 m, with two buffaloes that are tied.
