But generally around 20-25 yrs old children will surpass their parents in physical abilities. Obviously this isn't scientific, a hardcore 16 yr old beats an unfit parent and a fitness freak parent beats a 25yr old kid, etc. but that is the age that I've seen it happen at the most.

When I'm a parent I'd be quite pleased to see my son/daughter surpass me, I don't know why you're so amped to beat them?
Ian, I guess you don't know my sense of humor yet. I was joking. I want nothing more than to see her excel, it's just funny to hear her talk trash because I know she gets it from me. It's all in the name of fun. She'll be 21 in a month and a half.

Below is the race footage.
