Footage of a student cameraman who appeared to keep pace with the runners in a 100m sprint has gone viral. Watch here:

In the video, the student has a head start on the sprinters, but remarkably manages to hold the gap - despite the fact he's holding the camera rig in one arm, and isn't exactly dressed for the dash.

The video was shared by TikTok user @morpheuzz3.0, racking up more than 1.5 million views.

Describing the clip, he said: "This college student from Datong University in China was hired to record the 100m dash at a college track meet.

"However, as you can see, this guy is actually ahead of them and keeping up with the sprinters - while holding a 4kg camera and gimbal at the same time.

"Although he started a few metres ahead, he's still keeping on track and on pace with the sprinters. Just how fast is this guy? How is this even a job, I didn't realise it was? And why isn't he running the race instead?"

The footage went viral in China and across the globe, and social media has been awash with comments about the rapid videographer.

One person said: "Imagine practicing months or years just to be overshadowed by a cameraman."

Another suggested: "Plot twist: They are all applying for the vacant cameraman position."

Another added: "My guy said, 'Wait a minute, I can win this thing.'"

In April, a rogue dog broke on to the track and won a school relay race in the US.

The race took place at Utah-based Logan High School on Saturday, April 17, when a four-legged competitor decided to take part at the last moment.

A spectator was filming the sporting event when the rogue dog appeared out of the blue, sprinting past many of the runners.

The pooch quickly caught up to Gracie Laney, who was in the running for first place, but the dog overtook her, proving once and for all that four legs are better than two.

At one point, Gracie nearly tripped over the dog when it switched into her lane, but fortunately she managed to manoeuvre around the small, furry animal.

Recalling the moment she noticed something behind her, Gracie said to KSL: "At first, I thought it was another runner, and I was surprised because we had a pretty good lead.

"As it got closer, I thought, 'That's too small to be a person,' and then I noticed it was a dog."
