Olympic legend Usain Bolt and Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill are two of the fastest men on Earth. Lets’ make this race happen.
Yeah, I’m gonna need this to actually happen. It’s no secret that Usain Bolt (arguably the greatest Olympic sprinter of all time) and Kansas City Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill (quite likely the quickest athlete in the NFL) are remarkably fast runners.
It’s also no secret that a race between the two would be fascinating to watch. Bolt and Hill have bantered back and forth, on and off, for a little while now about who between the two is the fastest runner.
But now it appears that a race between Bolt and Hill could possibly happen.
Bolt appeared on the Dan Patrick Show where the possibility of racing Hill was brought up. Patrick suggested that the two race with some rather interesting stakes. In a clip from his show that was shared on Twitter, Patrick said the following:
"“A week after the Super Bowl, or it could be the Super Bowl weekend if he’s not playing. You put up one of your gold medals and he puts up his Super Bowl Ring. There we go!”"
Earlier in the clip, Patrick suggested that the two race in a 70 meter dash as a compromise between 40 and 100 to try and make things interesting.
“How about this, he wants 40 and you want 100. How about 70?” Patrick asked.
“I’m good with 70 meters,” Bolt stated.
Kansas City Chiefs: Are Usain Bolt and Tyreek Hill actually going to race?
There’s no commitment to a race from Bolt in the video, but he did indicate multiple times in the conversation that he’s interested in racing Hill. Bolt and Patrick did make it clear that the stakes would be in Bolt’s favor.
Hill has more to lose if he were to put up his Super Bowl ring against one of Bolt’s gold medals. It’s a simple math problem. Bolt has eight gold medals (which is a lot) while Hill only has one Super Bowl ring.
But if Hill were to come out and beat Bolt? Now that’d be something. Can we please find a way to make this happen?
