Rudolph Ingram, the 7-year old who's looking to be the new Bolt

This very young athlete is leaving rivals eating his dust and has caught the eye of those in American Football as well as sprint coaches.


Rudolph Ingram looks set to be one of the sprinting stars of the future. At the tender age of 7, the boy from Tampa, Florida has already shown off just how rapid he is, winning numerous competitions and setting new records for his age group.

Blaze catches fire

In one particular recent race, Ingram - who has come to be known as 'Blaze' - ran 60 metres in just 8.69 seconds. And he completed the 100-metre test at 13.48 seconds. As can be seen from the photo below, he's got an impressive medal haul already, and people are starting to talk about him as someone who could follow in Usain Bolt's speedy footsteps.

As well as pure sprinting prowess (check out the video at the top of the page) Ingram has also shown he is rather adept at running with an American football in his hands, skipping past similarly aged opponents. There may be a sporting choice ahead for this clearly very ambition young lad.
