The 12-Year-Old Basketball Player Who Dominates Everyone At 6ft 10in

The 12-Year-Old Basketball Player Who Dominates Everyone At 6ft 10in

Back in your school days there was always that one kid who was picked first when Basketball was on the curriculum. They were ridiculously tall for their age and nobody could get near them.

Well, somewhere in France right now, a lad going by the name of Olivier Rioux is definitely that guy.

Roux's incredible 6ft 10inch frame gives him a distinct advantage on the court, as kids of similar age must look up and think: "Is there actually any point in trying?"

As you can see in the following clip, the 12-year-old phenomenon towers above his helpless opponents. It really is incredible to watch.

Surely this lad has a big future ahead of him?

The domination here is quite frankly ridiculous. Rioux barely has to jump to score a basket and in the meantime, he is fairly accurate at throwing from distance.

In the future, the 12-year-old will undoubtably become a 7ft giant, like Tacko Fall, the 7-foot-6 basketball phenomenon who was set for stardom after a tough upbringing, huge amounts of dedication and the natural gift of height.

Tacko Fall's high school career lifted the rookie into the big league, with almost 40 different schools expressing an interest in the rising star.

Despite his young age, his talent was undeniable and let's face it, when you have a wingspan of over eight-foot, you're going to be a threat on the court. To put that into perspective, here is a picture of Tacko with the net.

To the delight of Fall, he was snapped up by the University Of Central Florida after impressing on a number of occasions with Liberty Christian Preparatory School in Florida over the two years he represented the high school side.

He maintained a 3.6 grade point average, making him the hottest property in Basketball.

During the 2013 season for Liberty Christian, he averaged 11.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. The only way was up for Tacko.

Fall confirmed back in April that he will return to Central Florida for his senior year.

Thoughts on the above clips? Does Olivier Rioux have a huge future in the game based on his current ability?

Let us know in the comments.
