During his recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the confident kid boldly told Ellen that he "wants to challenge Usain Bolt in a race"—and that he could beat him "100 percent." Well you can't let a challenge like that fall by the wayside, so the talk show host made it a reality and brought the two titans together for a winner takes all race.

"C'mon, Usain, don't be scared of me," said the younger Jamaican as he approached the starting line. Check out the interview and the race:
