BRADENTON, Fla. (BVM) – More and more people are discovering videos of athletes doing incredible things thanks to TikTok’s algorithm that allows users to come across people they otherwise wouldn’t have. 

Here are five athletes who’ve gone viral for their shock factor. 

5. 8-year-old sprints 17.5 mph

A video posted by Derrick Blaylock went viral of an 8-year-old sprinting 17.5 miles per hour for roughly 6 seconds on a treadmill. The video reached a whopping 19.1 million views with half a million likes. He shocked viewers with his speed and many compared him to Usain Bolt – who is known for averaging 23 mph for roughly 10 seconds.

The little athlete, identified as Jayce Wilson from Houston, is not so surprisingly a Junior Olympian. Since the viral video, which was even picked up by news outlets, he’s been able to increase his speed on the treadmill to 18.2 mph for roughly seven seconds. 

4. “Baby Hulk” bodybuilder 

The first three videos that Tristyn Lee ever posted on TikTok accumulated over 40 million views. People discovering him for the first time were impressed by his physique and had to do a double-take because of his “baby face.” 

The competitive bodybuilder is now a 19-year-old, 5-foot-3 Los Angeles resident. He continues to go viral with the journey he shares including why he eats animal tongue, how he was able to maintain only 4% body fat and the heaviest weights he can lift. 

3. 1-year-old pushes 70lb sled 

Endunamoo_sc – a gym located in Wichita Falls, Texas – posted a video of a 1-year-old pushing a 70-pound sled. The video was picked up by multiple platforms including No Days Off and Overtime, and videos of the super baby reached millions. 

The video shows a baby – who is probably learning how to walk – displaying the right amount of balance to push a sled that’s often used for conditioning in football. Even with the video proof, many are speculating that there’s a string or magnet being used for assistance because it’s almost too good to believe. The baby’s name is unknown, but many joke in the comments about how the baby actually grew up to be John Cena. 

2. “Fastest kid on the planet” 

People couldn’t help but notice when MaxPreps re-posted a video of a little kid “on X Games mode.” The video shows an elementary school boy running at an unbelievable speed during a track meet. The video garnered over 1.9 million views and upwards of 100,000 likes. 

The speedster is Tampa area’s own Rudolph “Blaze” Ingram. He’s also known as the “fastest kid on the planet” after breaking the 100m record for 7 and 8-year-old boys. He has since made a name for himself in football and many even believe that the now 10-year-old will be the NFL’s next Tyreek Hill

1. 7-foot-5 high school basketball player 

Not many were scrolling past this video of a 7-foot-5.3-inch high schooler on the basketball court. Users watched in awe of this noticeably tall player being too difficult to defend against. He can even dunk without his feet leaving too far off the ground. There are tons of comments of people wondering how it’s even fair for him to play. His height along with his ability to play well are the reasons why he has millions of likes across multiple videos on the platform. 

The face in the video is Olivier Rioux. He’s currently 16 years old and he actually holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s tallest teenager. He plays basketball at IMG Academy and it looks like he’s destined for Purdue basketball considering its history of recruiting 7-footers like William Berg and Zach Edey
