dialed in to the online event

raced over homemade courses

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FATHER OF 10-MONTH-OLD ROKAS, TOMAS RUKSTELE, SAYING:

"We didn't prepare very much, it was twice a day we tried to reach this finish line and perhaps while we was training, we were training for a smaller distance."

In the end it was 9-month-old Olivija

who was crowned the winner

with a time of 13 seconds

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FATHER OF 10-MONTH-OLD ROKAS, TOMAS RUKSTELE, SAYING:

"He was the best, it doesn't matter that he didn't win, our baby is the best."
