May 23 (UPI) --
Runners in a 100-meter race in China were surprised when a stray dog joined the competition -- and nearly came in first.
A video filmed Thursday at the Beifang University of Nationalities in Yinchuan City, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, shows a white dog joining the human runners in the 100-meter event.
The video shows the canine finish second.
Witnesses said the dog is a stray that has been known to locals for more than four years.
