People Are Comparing This Extremely Fast 7-Year-Old Athlete To Usain Bolt

Rudolph Blaze is a 7-year-old who is breaking records on the track field. The Tampa native is being compared to Usain Bolt after a video that showed him sprinting the 100m in just 13.48 seconds. According to Boredpanda, the Florida young athlete started training when he was only 4-year-old and now he has caught the world’s attention for his running skill.

In total, he has collected more than 50 medals until now. Blaze has even set the U.S record for his age group already and he has had a chiseled six-pack since he was 5.

In an interview with Youth 1 in 2017, Blaze said:

I work hard at practice to set the bar high for my teammates. I want to show them we need to give it all we’ve got. If they don’t know how to do something, I show them how to do it. I always tell them ‘You practice how you play.

However, Blaze is not doing great just on the track and football field. He’s got best grades in school, his father, who manages Blaze’s Instagram with more than 479k followers shared this picture of his marks and wrote:  “Work hard in class and on the field.”

He even won a Heisman trophy.

His father, Rudolph Ingram Senior, is a football coach who oversees his son’s training. He said:

I have never missed a practice, never missed a game, and I do all his training sessions,” Ingram Sr. told Tampa’s Fox affiliate. “He’s a superstar to everyone else. He’s my baby. I’m the manager, videographer, trainer, Uber driver . . . without the tip. The tip is just seeing him happy and loving what he does.

For sure Blaze is going to have his father’s support no matter what he chooses to do with his career:

What’s next? Rocket scientist? Let’s go. It doesn’t matter what it is. I’m behind him,” Ingram Sr. said. “Nobody sees the tree grow. All they see is when it’s big and beautiful. They don’t see it when it’s just a seed — when you’re watering it. You got to stay behind your child and constantly support them and water them. They’ll eventually grow to be something.

His father regularly posts Blaze’s photos together with his four-year-old brother on his Instagram page.

Blaze said that he loves his two passions alike:

Track increases my speed, body control and running form and the training prepares me for football. Football keeps me active for track and being able to show off my track speed.”

The coach of Raven’s team Jimmy Watson told Youth 1 that the young football player’s strong work ethic has inspired the rest of his teammates.

Well he’s not much of a talker. But I can say he never had a bad practice and he just has this attraction to kids of all ages. My players see Blaze doing something they’ll be right behind him. His eyes are always on the prize. If one of his fellow teammates slacks, he walks up to them individually and calls them out on it.

Blazes’ dream is to be the fastest man in the world. His success until now lets us know that he’s on the way to achieve his goal.
