    A very unusual competition of man versus machine took place in China. One of the country’s fastest sprinters, Zhang Peimeng, challenged a FTC-2000 fighter-trainer in a 100-meter run and won!

    On July 16, Peimeng was a guest in the TV show "Cheers Science" where he demonstrated the immensity of human power by demonstrating his abilities against a Chinese Guizhou JL-9 jet trainer, also known as the FTC-2000 Mountain Eagle. The athlete, whose personal record on a 100-meter track is exactly 10 seconds, was quicker than his "rival." The race was broadcast on China Central Television.

      Brave Explorers: Adorable Golden Retrievers Sail Down the River

      Some canines absolutely hate water and getting their hair wet, whereas others want to spend every minute of their life swimming and splashing like mad. And some doggos... well, let's say they are not averse to a bit of water but it's not their favourite element either. And it doesn't matter if we're talking about a shower, river, or the open sea.
