Along with their competitive spirit, parents in America brought out their babies for the 6th annual Diaper Derby.
Ahead of the NYC triathlon on Friday, around 30 adorable babies gathered for the Diaper Dash.
Some babies had to be baited to the finish line with teddies and toys, while others simply didn't fancy it.
However, one-year-old Liam Herald managed to crawl his way to victory.
The youthful athlete set a blistering pace in his first round racing or crawling across the finish line.
Nailing a record of just over 11seconds he made dad John very proud.
“He has been working on it for a year now”, John said jokingly. “He's been working on his training, he pushes furniture around the apartment to build his leg strength”.
The Derby is just one part of the family event held for those participating in the triathlon.
The annual event consists of 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run in central park.
