The daughter of one of the best boxers in history has taken the internet by storm with a viral video of her track meet. You have to see this to believe it.
Terence Crawford, who has held the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO belts and is the current WBO welterweight champion posted the video of his daughter on Instagram and wrote:
“I just can’t stop thinking about my daughter’s track meet yesterday. She just doesn’t have a clue how much she just motivated me. This is the definition of not giving heart and grit. She let it all hang out even when she was hit with adversity.”
The video was shared by 12 -time Olympic gold medalist runner Michael Johnson:
Okay. If you do nothing else today. Watch this kid! https://t.co/0Myw9Xinsz

Lay Lay, Crawford’s daughter, is seen losing her shoe at the start of the race. While her competitors continued to run, she grabs her shoe, slips it on, and attempts to catch up with the others.
As the crowd cheers her on, she miraculously catches up with the others and begins to bypass them one by one. She pulls ahead and crosses the finish line first, with some distance too.
By the looks of it, Terence Crawford might just have a future track star on his hands.
