Timmy is much older and thus more physically mature than James.

The key phrase, "one day" means sometime in the future but since we do not know how far in the future 'one day' is, it is perfectly plausible to assume that 'one day' occurred many years later and thus Timmy is now a young college student sitting by himself on a dune when three butt head 8th graders come over to bother him.

he could just lift James 1 inch off the ground and run into the ocean. Since he started on a sand dune, he'll win the bet easily.

The grammar in the OP contradicts that solution.

Then again, what do I know. English is not my native language.

I meant sixth graders came to bother Timmy not 8th graders.
