7-year-old sprinter Rudolph ‘Blaze’ Ingram set the internet on fire again after a video of him was posted that showed the Florida boy sprinting the 100m in just 13.48 seconds. Rudolph has a nickname: “Blaze the Great” and has been called “the next Usain Bolt”
Blaze first caught the world’s attention six months ago when NBA star LeBron James shared a video of the young athlete outrunning defenders during a football game.
He has a growing Instagram following that just topped 300,000 and viral videos all over the place. He has football skills, too, and has drawn the attention of LeBron James and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, among others. In total, Blaze has won 36 medals including 20 golds in the past two Amateur Athletic Union national championship events.
