Correction for the speed of a Gazelle

Thanks for your input! Let us know more about what's wrong in the form below.
How fast is 2,680 meters per minute?
It's about two times as fast as a Gazelle
The speed of a Gazelle is about 1,000 meters per minute.
(for Thomson's Gazelle, a.k.a. Eudorcas thomsoni, a.k.a. "Tommie", a.k.a. "Tommy")
A Thomson's gazelle can reach speeds of up to 1,000 meters per minute. The gazelle's speed doesn't match that of its chief predator, the cheetah, but a gazelle's endurance usually ensures an escape in distances greater than 500 m (0.3 mi).
