HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — The next fastest person in the world could be from right here in Houston.

Video on social media shows 8-year-old Junior Olympian Jayce Wilson running an incredible 18.2 mph on a treadmill at Armed Sports Performance gym.

Not only did he reach incredible speeds… but he did it with ease.
