Cheetah Race for Survival: Bryan Habana Races Cheetah

Cheetah Race for Survival, Rugby star Bryan Habana races a cheetah to help save them from extinction.

The De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre, also known as Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre is a captive breeding facility for South African cheetahs and other animals that is situated in the foothills of the Magaliesberg mountain range (near Brits and the Hartbeespoort Dam) in the North West Province of South Africa.

Springbok wing Bryan Habana has been humbled by a little-known three-year-old at the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre.

Habana, a self-confessed speed junkie found himself in the slow lane when the cheetah, named Cetane, effortlessly tore past the man dubbed the fastest player in the Super 14 in an exhibition race.

A bashful Habana said afterwards that he “always knew” he didn’t stand a chance of winning the race. “It’s not about me. The cheetah’s the most important thing at the moment, and I’m going to do everything in my power to focus on the conservation of the cheetah,” he said before the race.
