Racing London's Tube system by foot is nothing. Try doing it on wheels.

Wheelchair-bound athlete Anthony attempted to mimic the run famously filmed by a sprinter beating the Tube to its next stop. Unfortunately, he had a little more difficulty.

Just as he reaches the final descent to meet the train, Anthony encounters a long flight of stairs.

Anthony and his friends filmed the video as a way to raise awareness for the fact that 25 percent of London's Tube stations are not wheelchair accessible.

Anthony says that the lack of Tube access is so frustrating that he normally avoids it entirely.

According to Anthony,

"I tend to just use buses. It's too difficult to know where I can and can't get to when I take the tube. It feels like us wheelchair users are being ignored.

Still, Anthony's impressively quick on a pair of wheels. Imagine what he could do with the help of a few ramps.
