Meet Garret Doherty, the man who could beat world record-holding sprinter Usain Bolt in a sprint. Just as long as they were running entirely...backwards.

Doherty of Dublin, Ireland could never hope to beat the Jamaican's 100 meter time of 9.58 seconds in a traditional race, but he's the world's fastest human at running in reverse. If you think that would look as ridiculous as it sounds, just watch the video below to see for yourself:

And apparently this is actually a sport — retro running — and Doherty is the world champion in it.
