An 8-year-old boy did what Justin Gatlin could not – beat Usain Bolt in a foot race.
Eight-year-old YouTube fitness sensation Demarjay Smith was on the Ellen DeGeneres show and he started talking a little smack on how he could beat Usain Bolt in footrace. “Trust me,” he told Ellen. Next thing you know, Bolt came out onto the show and soon they were racing in a footrace outside of the studio.
Bolt hammed it up well with the 8-year-old and then got beaten by Demarjay. No word yet on the rematch or whether Bolt was hung over from Oktoberfest. You can watch the race wtih Demarjay below.
Bolt comes out at the 3:40 mark and the race is around the 5:00 mark.
