Chicago Bears' Devin Hester Wins Unprecedented 1-1 Race With Cheetah!

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Captured on tape for the first time, NFL player for the Chicago Bears Devin Hester -- the super-agile wide receiver and kick returner -- outruns a cheetah in the one-on-one race at Busch Gardens Tampa's Cheetah Run attraction. Additionally, Tennessee Titans' Chris Johnson -- the NFL's fastest running back -- also gives the cheetah a run for its money.

The races are part of Nat Geo WILD's Man v. Cheetah, which kicked off the network's fourth annual BIG CAT WEEK Friday night. The race can be seen again in a special encore Monday night, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

To prepare the cheetahs for the race, Busch Gardens Tampa trainers used training techniques to help familiarize the cats with new experiences, such as running next to a trainer separated by an 11-foot wall and placing cameras high above the habitat. A month before race day, the trainers began working with the cheetahs conducting sprints using the same motorized lure system they were already using to stimulate the cats' natural instinct to chase.
