A young Pakistani athlete seems to have caught the eye of track and field legend Carl Lewis.



Mohi Shah, a Pakistani sports journalist, tweeted a video of a Pakistan youngster completing a stunning long jump.

Wearing a t-shirt bearing the Pakistan flag, the youngster sets off on a long run up before flinging himself high to complete an amazing leap over 11 bikes parked together.

'Actually with his lack of fear, he has the perfect mindset,' tweeted nine-times Olympic gold medallist Carl Lewis after watching the video.

The American legend ruled the long jump during his era, winning the Olympic gold medal four times in a row from 1984 to 1996 -- making him one of only three athletes to win the gold medal in the same individual event at four consecutive Olympic Games.
