    Can you name a future sports star?

    As like most on here we love our sports,unfortunately like most on here our time has past.

    My passion is running and i have seen 2 runners that are going to be future stars,even champions.

    Both really young atm so anything can happen.

    First of all an 11 year old boy who i have seen run a few times and running and beating 13 year old quite often.

    His name is Charlie Hague and he runs for Exeter Harriers.

    The 2nd a girl who is 12 and runs for Cornwall.

    Her name is Maisey Luke and out of the 2 she has the most potential and is already an all England cc champion.


    Any that you know of,in any sport.

    Callum Scott already off +1 at 12. only a little squirt too. Younger brother of Sandy who's off +5 and a collage in the US, Young Callum is supposed to be way better as sand was still of 2 or 3 at that age.

    I know nothing about the Scott brothers but I do wonder whether there is any older brother who is better at his sport than his younger brother. It seems that anytime these discussions come up then the younger brother is always better than his older brother at the same age. Matt Fitzpatrick must be sick to death of hearing how his younger brother is so much better than he was.

    most would make this assumption as he was the same age getting to 0 as Tiger and his brother was two or 3 years older when he got to 0.

    Well said. I've heard that comment so many times and I can't remember a situation when it actually came true at pro level. As we all, should know, it is not just about talent but desire, determination, temperament, what is between the ears.

    There's a pub bore at our place, likes to tell you how many low level amateur football trophies he's won. Anyway he comes out with the usual guff "aye there was this young lad, better than Gazza when they were the same age" zzzzZZZZzzzz
    So Gazza tore up a World Cup and your mate has been working in a car wash for 30 years
