Chad Johnson left plenty of defensive backs in the dust during his 11 years in the NFL.

Now, the former six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is having the joy of watching his daughter light the National Junior Olympics on fire.

Johnson's 10-year-old daughter, Cha'iel Johnson, ran the 800m qualifying race Wednesday, turning in an event-best time of 2:30.75, nearly two whole seconds quicker than her closest competitor, according to TMZ Sports.

Chai'el will now advance to Saturday's final. She'll also run in the 200m race Wednesday.

A look at her famous dad's Twitter timeline shows how proud he is.

Good luck to the young lady!
