Sarah is the Cincinnati Zoo's 11 year-old cheetah, and now, she's the world's fastest land mammal.

She ran 100 metres in 5.9 seconds, beating her 2009 record.

It takes Usain Bolt - the world's fastest human - 9.8 seconds to clear that distance.

Zoo officials say Sarah was clocked sprinting at a staggering 98 kilometres per hour.
