Some animals can do much better than the famous sportsmen!
Sea snakes can dive 100 meters deep and stay under the water for up to 5 hours. Some sea snakes can swim at the rate of 1 meter per second.

Incredibly, the sailfish can swim faster than a cheetah can run. Its top speed is 109 km an hour.

Squirrel monkeys sometimes leap straight into the air from the tree tops to catch insects. Sometimes these leaps are up to 60 meters.
