Thailand’s fastest baby has been decided after an 11-month-old boy crawled to the finish line of a five-metre event in just 37 seconds.
Pawut Ear-techa crawled past 13 other competitors to win the gold medal at the competition arranged by Suranaree University of Technology for Children’s Day on Saturday.
The atmosphere at the competition was joyful, as the crowd cheered the babies to crawl along the path toward the finish line, where their parents were waiting with snacks and toys. A total of 14 babies of both sexes competed in the race.
Even though there were only three medals for the fastest babies, all competitors were rewarded with scholarships for their future education as well as snacks and toys.
A Suranaree University of Technology statement said it arranged the competition to promote exercise in babies, which benefits their physical development.
