9-Year-Old Matador.

Take a look at Rafita Mirabal stare down a charging 400-lbs bull with nothing but a red cape and a short sword. Oh, did I tell you he's 9 years old?

Rafita already has had about two dozen fights in bullrings since 2005, including his latest challenge on Sunday in Texcoco, just east of Mexico City.

His contests differ slightly from a regular bullfight. The animals are younger and somewhat smaller, and he does not give the matador's final death blow with his sword. The ban on swordplay isn't to protect Rafita, but rather the sport's reputation.
