National Zoo’s cheetah cubs to be named after fastest American Olympians

cheetahs2The two cheetah cubs at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and the Olympic athletes have one thing in common: starting this week they will be showing off their speed, agility and raw, physical prowess.

Just days before the opening of the Olympic Games, the Zoo is introducing the 3-month-old cubs to their yard at the Zoo’s Cheetah Conservation Station, giving them outdoor space to romp, run and play. And soon, they will have even more in common with the Olympians: In partnership with USA Track & Field, the Zoo will be naming the male and female cubs after the fastest American male and fastest American female athletes in the Olympics 100-meter dash. The possible names for the female cub: Carmelita, Tianna and Allyson; for the male cub: Justin, Tyson and Ryan.
