Flash Facts: Stamina of the Cheetah

"Although the cheetah is the fastest of all land animals--estimates range as high as 84 miles per hour--it can maintain this amazing speed only over a very short distance. When subjected to a 500-yard test on an oval track, a cheetah was clocked at an average speed of only 44 mi/hr (about equal to that of the fastest race horse)."
