Nothing can distract me - my eye's on the prize! The race is on to crown Lithuania's fastest crawling baby. Parents went to extreme lengths to coax their tots across the 5-meter rug … even a dart board? Some sped forward unchallenged. While others were happy to take it easy. Eventual winner was Kasparas Abromavicius. Whose mom, Gita Abromaviciene has probably never been so excited to see her child crawl. SOUNDBITE: Gita Abromaviciene, mother of race winner Kasparas Abromavicius, saying (Lithuanian): "We're feeling great. Thank you very much. This is our first victory and we're very happy." The 13th annual Baby Crawling Competition celebrated International Child Protection Day and the 25 little ones provided full-sized entertainment value. Tara Cleary, Reuters.
