Whippet's Run During 'Fastest Dogs USA Competition' Is Show-Stopping

The Fastest Dogs USA Competition took place on September 16 in Kannapolis, North Carolina at the Atrium Health Ballpark. This event brought together some of the country's fastest dogs for a 100-yard dash. And well, the results are just mind blowing. 

EPSN posted on their TikTok account (@espn) a clip from the race's runner up. This dog's speed will seriously blow you away. It clearly did for the rest of the internet as it reached over 17.4 million views in one day. Check out this quick as-lighting Whippet named Winston!

HOLY! We don't...we don't have words for this performance. The caption was right on point. Winston seriously snapped. He had his eyes on the price and left it all out on the field. According to an American Kennel Club article, Winston's fastest speed was 34.44 mph. WOW! And just for reference, the winning dog's speed was 34.98. How on earth?!

"Bruh, how is a Cheetah faster than this 💀," asked @marcelllei. We're already blown away by this run that it's hard to imagine a cheetah running faster. Absolutely unreal to think about! @winonakicks commented, "Bro is floating." Seriously though! Winston is running so fast that he looks like he's flying. 

@reallyonlyaiden said, "You think that's fast? You should see my dog when I try to get something out of his mouth." Or you should see when we go over to the food bin just how quickly our dog comes sprinting over! "When mom says the pizza rolls are ready," added @briitton. LMAO!
