As I am quickly approaching 50 years old, I find it more difficult to run under 12.00 seconds for the 100 meters.
That’s life, and I accept it.
I wrote about 16 year old Yoshihide Kiryu who recently ran 10.21 & 10.19 for 100 meters. Now that is amazing.
But how about 12 year old Australian James Gallaugher who has run 11.72?
Sure, 11.72 is nothing to brag about, but he is 12 years old!
If I raced against him today, he would surely kick my butt.
(And yes, I will stop calling you Shirley)
Take a look at this video on YouTube where James Gallaugher is the anchor in Lane 3, and gets the baton 20 meters behind the leader.
Watch him take out the fishing rod, and reels in Lane 4.
Will James Gallaugher be the next
Usain Bolt Yoshihide Kiryu?
