Diaper Derby '19 - every baby wins, but there's one champ

The record heat has forced New York City to cancel the annual city triathlon, but the babies were off to the races Friday in the annual Diaper Derby. Held indoors at a midtown Manhattan hotel, heats of six babies were placed on a 12-foot (3.7 meters) mat and encouraged to make it to the other side. The tykes must be more than six-months-old to qualify, but still in the crawling phase - which means the participants unwittingly made for plenty of cuteness. There was the crier who nevertheless stayed on course. And of course, plenty of his peers decided to go their own way, paying no mind to the race itself.
