Usain Bolt has competitors and he’s only 7 years old. Rudolph “Blaze” Ingram has taken the internet by storm again after a video of him running the 100 meters in just 13.48 seconds was posted. Blaze first gained worldwide attention six months ago when NBA star LeBron James shared a video of a young child running from defenders during a football game.
This wunderkind started training to be a track and field runner when he was just 4 years old and has since proven his star power by setting a US record for his age group. He won the 100m last summer and finished second in the 200m in his age group at the AAU Championships.
In total, the young star has won 36 medals, including 20 golds, in the last two national championships of the Amateur Athletic Union. But his athleticism is not limited to athletics. The Tampa native is a double threat, using his speed on the football field. At the age of six, the current Heisman winner played for the Tampa Ravens in the Senior Boys League.
