Usain Bolt is currently the fastest man in the world, and for the time being, it seems like no one will be able to challenge that title. But, it looks like sometime in the near future, Bolt's records might have some competition for the top spot. Usain Bolt, meet Rudolph Ingram, otherwise known as Blaze the Great. Ingram, aka Blaze, is a seven-year-old boy from Tampa Bay, Florida who is making a name for himself on social media with ridiculous running times. And you've got to see it to believe it.
If you think he is fast now, just wait until he gets into high school — MaxPreps (@MaxPreps) February 10, 2019

Blaze competed and dominated in track races, posting an 8.69-second 60-meter dash, and a 13.48-second 100-meter dash. Whew.
Blaze already has 283,000 followers on Instagram, with many of his posts consisting of videos of him either on the track, or on the football field. The seven-year-old does also compete (and dominate) on the gridiron as well, with his speed and strength being too much for the other kids of his age.
With 11 years still between Ingram and the chance to compete on a college track or football field, the boy still has plenty of time to get even faster, and maybe take Usain Bolt's title of fastest man in the world. But as of now, I'd say he has the title of fastest seven-year-old on lock.
