#RunningManChallenge makes its way to the sports world

If you've been surfing the internet at all over the past week you've certainly seen the #RunningManChallenge, but wait until you see actual Olympic runners take it on. Runners doing the running man? Yes please. 

Two-time Olympian and CBC's own Anson Henry was on hand to help film the video that went viral in less than 24 hours alongside Lolo Jones and Phylicia George.

Started by Kevin Vincent and Jeremiah Hall, two high school students from New Jersey, it went viral when University of Maryland basketball players, Jaylen Brantley and Jared Nickens picked it up. The challenge is simple: do the running man to an old '90s hit song called "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJ's.

Similar to the Harlem Shake, the running man challenge has spread to the the NBA, UFC, and everyone else.

The challenge creators were taken to next-level web stardom this week when they made an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' show. Crazy to think that this all started as just a little bit of locker-room shenanigans.

You know a dance craze has blown up when it stops being a social media challenge and officially crosses over into real life.
