According to the Jiangsu Public Security Bureau’s official Weibo, a man, surnamed Yang snatched a pedestrian’s iPhone on the streets of Zhangjiagang, in Jiangsu province. So far, so unremarkable. Until that is, Yang ran 100m in 12 seconds to escape. To put Yang’s feat in context, 100m in 12 seconds is only 1.84 seconds slower than Chinese record holder and Asia’s fastest man, Su Bingtian.
25 year old Yang was later arrested for theft and hopefully advised to look into a career change.
