Jesse Buntz lives in Pictou, Nova Scotia and believes he is the fastest runner in the world.

"I've never been officially timed but everyone who sees me run says I'm fast," claims Buntz.

For the past six months, Buntz has been raising money to fly to Toronto to get his speed certified by Athletics Canada.

"I really hope they give me a running start," says Buntz, "because I usually don't get going my fastest until after a couple hundred metres."


This Is That followed Buntz on his journey to Toronto to see if he truly is the world's fastest man.
