The fastest pigeon on record is the "Gustav" pigeon, which was bred and trained by a Belgian pigeon racing enthusiast named Leo Heremans. Gustav won the prestigious One Loft Race in South Africa in 2004, covering a distance of 600 km (372 miles) at an average speed of 134.6 km/h (83.6 mph).

It's worth noting that the speed of a racing pigeon can vary depending on a variety of factors, including weather conditions, the length of the race, the age and experience of the bird, and the quality of its training and nutrition. However, Gustav's record-breaking performance is a testament to the incredible speed and endurance of these remarkable birds.
