On Wednesday, eight-year-old Jamaican self-proclaimed personal trainer Demarjay Smith, who became famous recently after a video of him went viral, beat the world’s fastest man usain Bolt on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, which aired on NBC.
Demarjay, when asked by DeGeneres about his future plans, said he wanted to be a personal trainer, basketball player and a track athlete, before he went on to challenge Bolt.
The race, which took place outside the studio, saw Demarjay emerging as the winner. Bolt at the last stretch held on to his thigh and jokingly cried that he had cramps, allowing young Demarjay to cross the finish line ahead of him.
While on the show, Bolt announced he will begin training on Monday for the 2016 Olympics, which will be held in Rio, Brazil and confirmed to DeGeneres and her audience that Rio 2016 will be his last Olympics.
