RANDALLSTOWN, Md. (WJZ) — A child’s game that exploded in popularity is now, for the first time, recognized by the Amateur Athletic Union. This past week, there were contests to rank the best in the country.

Mike Schuh introduces us to the national winner from Baltimore.

Noah White is a master at stacking little yellow cups.

“I got three gold medals hanging under my neck,”  Noah said.

The gold medals are not from any organization but from the prestigious Amateur Athletic Union. He is, in his category, the fastest 8-year-old in America.

His mom couldn’t be prouder.

“He is blind in one eye and has glaucoma in the left eye,” said Teira Canty. “This is something he wanted to do and something I thought would build his confidence and self-esteem. Considering he can’t play basketball or football, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

While his eyesight may not improve, his stacking will with practice.

That national contest is by invitation only. White plans to enter more competitions to see if he can be invited again next year.
