Sprinting 12-Year-Old Amazes with Come-from-Behind Win at Track Meet
If you blink, you may miss this kid who nearly takes off from the ground because he is running so fast.
A tip of the hat to Off the Bench for spotting a 12-year-old going full Usain Bolt on the rest of these youth sprinters.
Now careful, because you might make the same mistake that I did in figuring the video is about the kid who breaks out to an early lead.
At first, I found nothing at all remarkable about the video other than the huge deficit, leading me to think I had missed something.
That's when a blur comes across the screen which, according to Off the Bench, is indeed something remarkable. It all goes down at an Australian track meet at the tail end of a 4x100 race:
His name is James Gallaugher, 12, and he’s running the anchor leg of the 4x100m...His time? 11.72 seconds for the 100m leg, according to News Ltd., which would be a U.S. record for his age group.
I am not one to dispute that we saw an age-related record broken here by Gallaugher.
His jaw-dropping performance ended with one of the best closes in a race we have ever seen.
We look forward to seeing a great deal more of this kid at future Summer Games.
Hit me up on Twitter if you know what's good for you.
