Terence “Bud” Crawford might very well be the No. 1 boxer in the world any day now as far as pound-for-pound rankings go. It’s an astonishing rise for the 34-year-old Nebraska native, who has yet to lose a fight in his professional career (38-0, 29 KOs). Even more astonishing: he might not even be the best athlete in his own family.

At least this week, that title belongs to his seven-year-old daughter, Talaya, who’s track meet on Saturday has gone viral for her incredible comeback victory.

After running out of her shoe on the starting blocks of a 200-meter sprint, Talaya calmly puts it back on as the rest of the pack dashes down the track. The mishap allowed the young Crawford to pull off a Rich Strike-like comeback and demolish the field to the finish line.

Just watch for yourself.

It doesn’t matter what age group is competing, that is simply remarkable. What could be more inspiring than watching your child (any child, really) find the focus, toughness and determination to push through when everything goes wrong.

As Terence Crawford wrote on Instagram, Talaya let it all hang when faced with adversity.

May we all carry the same energy.
