A seven-year-old boy from the US, named Rudolph Ingram has been dubbed the ‘fastest kid in the world’ after a video of him completing 100m in 13:48 seconds.
The 100m star, who goes by the name ‘Blaze’ won the USA track and field records for his age group last weekend, and has since clocked up over 397,000 followers on Instagram.
In an interview with ABC news, Ingram’s father, Rudolph Ingram Senior, said he was four when he started running, after being inspired by the Olympics.
"I can give him all the tools to be great, but his drive and work ethic and competitive mentality, it sets the bar so much higher,” he said.
His father described Ingram as humble yet competitive.
"This is my baby, I’m overly proud of him. He makes me so proud,” said Rudolph Sr. "I don’t like saying it, but I feel like he’s a one in a million child. I don’t like saying it because he’s my child but I definitely feel like he does great things."
Although at the moment the seven year old runner says his goals are to play American football, we’ll be watching out for him on the track in the future.
