CHICAGO (CBS) -- The Chicago Park District has found the "fastest kids" in the city.

Over the weekend, the Park District held its second annual "Fastest Kids in Chicago" track competition. More than 300 kids between the ages of 5 and 14 participated.

The winners not only claimed the title of being the fastest, but were provided access to track and field programming and resources.

The young athletes were divided by age groups, and participated in timed 60-meter, 200-meter, and 400-meter races.

One of the winners, Michael Norwood III, said it felt great to take home first place. He and his parents hope his win inspires other kids.
