That’s one cool cat! A mountain lynx crossed the finish area during a training run for the men’s downhill race of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler.

Astonished Canadian downhiller Manuel Osborne-Paradis said. ‘Get out of the way! Oh wow! You do not want to get close to that.’

Officials broadcast a warning over the race radio to make sure no skiers were on the course and eventually the lynx hopped over the barriers lining the track and returned to the forest.
