Eight rhinos celebrated there being one year until London 2012 by having a 100m race.

The heavyweight clash took place at Mile End Park Stadium in London to raise awareness of the work done by the Save The Rhino charity, which conserves populations of critically endangered rhinos in Africa and Asia.

Alas, there were no real rhinos competing – just eight people in pretty impressive rhino costume.

Jesse Rhin-Owens pipped Rhin’Usain Bolt and Seb Rhin-Coe to the post in 14.59 seconds.

Not a bad time.
