The 7 Year Old Athlete That May Do Better Than Bolt

A seven-year-old boy has been labelled the “fastest kid in the world” after sprinting 100m in just 13.48 seconds.

The Sun reports that Viral video shows the lightning speed of young track star Rudolph Ingram, known as “Blaze”.

The Florida lad first found fame six months ago when the NBA’s LeBron James posted a video of Blaze leaving defenders in his wake during an American football game.

Now the sprinting superkid has returned to the track over the weekend for the first meeting of the year.

The video has seen his Instagram followers rise above 310,000.

A post on account, which is run by his father Rudolph Senior, says he crossed the line in just 13.48 seconds, beating his personal best by 1.5 seconds.

If that time is correct, it is a new record – USA Track and Field says the previous best time for a seven-year-old is 13.67.

His dad wrote: “Proud to say my son maybe the fastest 7 year old in the world. To the top love all those hours of training paid off.”

Blaze has won 36 medals including 20 golds in the past two Amateur Athletic Union national championship events.

When he was six he played running back and safety for the Tampa Ravens in a league designed for older boys.

He still managed to score ten touchdowns for the season.

Video shows him wrong-footing opponents as he jinks past at terrifying speed.

Coach Jimmy Watson told youth1.com: “At running back you can count on him to put the team on his small back and carry us to the promised land.

“At safety, it’s unbelievable how he can make plays in the backfield.

“At running back, he’s very fast but even more elusive. The kid has vision like I’ve never seen in a six-year-old before.

“One second he’s going one way and then you blink and he’s going another way.
