Next Ursain Bolt? Come on. Only the "casual" track fan is excited about this. He "IS" a fast 12 year old, but not super, so hold up the press. An 11.7 hundred isn't that impressive, even for a 12 year old. If he's turning sub 10's in high school, we can take get excited. In the hundred, from start to finish, is often a lot further than a hundred meters.

He has potential....But a grossly Premature comparison....

Get used to it. You'll hear it for the next 20 years for many many fast kids (unless there's some other guy that comes along as amazing as Bolt). See comparisons to Michael Jordan in the 80's-00's as reference until LeBron and Kobe got huge and people slowly stopped using "the next Michael Jordan" for every awesome kid basketball player.

It was never fair for us "slow developers" to try to compete with the kids that were already shaving by age 12-13... I don't think I actually "had" to shave until I hit about 16 or 17.

There's many a slip twixt cup and lip. I hope James Gallaugher is allowed to develop. It's a lot tougher in the big leagues.

Many precocious 12 year-old kids eventually get caught by their late developing contemporaries. They almost always come back to the pack by the time they are 18.

Reminds me of a star basketball player on our 7th Grade team. He was 6 feet tall and dominated the court, scoring at will. By his senior year, he was still 6 feet tall and just another player on the court. Well said.

was honestly excited to think that this guy was gonna be a non african sprinter. nah, just another naturally fast black guy...

The kid named James who this article is about looks like he's 'non-african' though he might have some aboriginal blood...we need a closer look to confirm but I think you can get excited again.

id love that, just for sake of equality because if bacl people have a genetic advantage as it appears they do then there SHOULD be a white only or black only olympics.

It was like a talented 12 year old competing against 12 year olds!

I was Usain Bolts' teacher in elementary school. There are many 12 year olds there running close to that speed. Also, that was top end speed (fast). The kid that got ran down would not qualify for sports day in Jamaica, in any school. Heck, I barely made a track team, the kids are fast and they know they are fast. Track there is like what baseball or football is here, everyone participates at some point or another. If you are fast (standout), you will get noticed. Is this kid fast? Defenitely! Will he maintain that speed? We will see.

He tested positive for Vegemite.

The difference between 9.58 and 11.7 in the 100m is insane. Yes the kid is fast for his age but there are 1000's of kids that will run faster than 11.7 in high school in any given year.
