Remember our childhood days back in primary school where we were actively involved in sports? And if you have good memory, you may be able to recall who was the best long jumper, the fastest runner, or the unbeatable hurdler.
Child prodigies are extremely rare, and to find a seven-year-old boy who is able to blaze through 100 metres of track in 13.48 seconds would cause one to have his or her jaw dropped in disbelieve.
Meet Rudolph Ingram.
This 100m sprinter, aptly goes by the name ‘Blaze’, have been garnering an incredible amount of followers on Instagram and currently have clocked close to 490 thousand followers.
Rudolph Ingram’s father, Rudolph Ingram Sr, has played an instrumental part in the boy’s athleticism and said that he started training his son when he was just four years old, according to an interview by ABC Action News.
“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 in the interview.
It is truly impressive how Ingram Jr. is able to trigger such powerful strides although he is currently stands at about 4-foot-tall only.

“This is my baby, I’m overly proud of him. He makes me so proud,” said Rudolph Sr, reported ABC Action News. “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.”
The sky is the limit and we wish Rudolph Ingram all the best in beating Usain Bolt’s record to become the fastest man on Earth!
