James Heptonstall, um ingles fissurado em corridas, decidiu apostar uma corrida contra o vagão do metrô e se saiu bem.
Ele esperou o metrô parar na estação Mansion House, desceu do vagão, fez todo o trajeto até a próxima estação de Cannon (incluindo obstáculos como escadas, catracas, passageiros no meio do caminho, ruas, carros, trânsito…), e conseguiu entrar a tempo no mesmo vagão antes que a porta se fechasse.

This man raced a tube train and filmed the whole thing
A video showing a man racing, and beating, the London Underground is still being enjoyed three years after it was filmed.
It’s had millions of views online, and inspired the hashtag #racethetube.
In the video, the runner, James Heptonstall, gets off the tube at Mansion House station, and runs for his life to the next tube stop.
He runs into Cannon Street and jumps onto the same train he got off – back into the same carriage, no less – and just makes it before the doors close.
Heptonsall said it took moths of planning – he even had his girlfriend placed halfway to give him the okay to run across a road.
It might sound a bit pointless, but still, impressive, eh?
It’s even more fun when you see the two videos side-by-side.
