PHOTOS: D.C.’s cheetah cubs meet Olympic medalists
Two of the world’s fastest Olympians got some one-on-one time Thursday with two of the National Zoo’s quickest cats. It was a chance for sprinters Carmelita Jeter and Justin Gatlin to meet their four-legged namesakes, a pair of cheetah cubs born last spring. Check out these adorable photos from their visit.
Jeter won the silver in the women's 100-meter sprint. She nicknamed her cub “Lita the Cheetah”.
