It seems that the boy will be able to achieve the same, if not greater, by the time he reaches Bolt’s age in 25 more years.

Ingram is also a three-time Amateur Athletic Union winner where he stunned people from all over the world by finishing 60 meters in just 8.69 seconds.

While Ingram is doing great on the track, the aspiring youngster has a bigger goal.

“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,” Ingram Sr. said.
