Cha’iel Johnson is notably the daughter of former NFL wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson. However, it appears as though the youngster is well on her way to making a name for herself all on her own.

Earlier in the week, Johnson’s daughter set the United States record in the 800-meter among 12-year-old girls. Cha’iel’s latest performance was reportedly five seconds better than the time she originally posted upon previously winning a gold medal at the AAU Junior Olympics.

While her father was certainly known for his quickness and agility on the football field, it appears as though “Ochocinco’s” daughter could surpass pops’ speed on the track.
