Daniel Skandera from Santa Rosa, Calif., is only 7 years old and already holds the world record in the mile for 5 year olds, 6 year olds and 7 year olds.

He added another mark to his lengthy resume when he won the 7-8 boys 1,500 meter race at the USATF National Junior Olympic Championships in Jacksonville, Fla., this weekend.

But what made his crowd-pleasing performance more unique — he ran barefoot.

Yep, Skandera posted a time of 5:08.52 to set a national age-group record and break the meet record by three seconds and did it without shoes.
