The other day in downtown Vancouver, in-between filming scenes for the fifth episode of the upcoming season, Grant Gustin, who was dressed as The Flash, hung out with Brandon Routh's son, Leo. And once again, showing he's a superhero even when the cameras aren't rolling, Gustin made Leo's day truly special by racing and losing to the excited youngster. Now Leo can tell his friends he's The Fastest Boy Alive!

"Epic shoot day on location. C. Kim Miles shot what will be 2 amazing sequences. The high point for me was losing to Leo," Gustin wrote. "He did get a slight head start though. And I think my leg cramped up a little. Also I think I had the wrong boots on."

Leo's father, who stars on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, had this to say: "When your dad is #Superman & #TheAtom, but you heart #TheFlash...😜 HUGE props to the crazy talented and genuinely kind @grantgust for being such a great sport!"

Check out the race from two different angles in the videos below.

Blinded by anger, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) unwittingly plays into Zoom's game and uncovers the evil speedster's true goal: to destroy all Earths in the multiverse. In the race of his life, Barry ultimately gets the upper hand against Zoom and defeats his nemesis. But unable to celebrate victory, Barry makes a world-shaking decision and speeds back in time to the night his mother died to stop Reverse Flash from killing her, irrevocably changing his past and redetermining his future.

The cast also features Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, and Tom Cavanaugh as Dr. Harrison Wells.
