Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has some of the best game-breaking speed in the NFL, so he decided to put it to test among some of the best sprinters in the world on Sunday.
And the results are in.
Metcalf, lined up in the No. 2 lane, clocked in at 10.36 seconds in the 100-meter dash at the USA Track and Field Golden Games in Southern California, finishing in last place in his heat.
Only the top three finishers in his heat, all of whom ran 10.11, qualified for Olympic Trials.
While Metcalf did not qualify and finished last, by no means did he embarrass himself. A time of 10.36 seconds in the 100-meter dash is blazing fast speed, especially for a guy who is 6-foot-3 and 235 pounds.
FS1’S Emmanuel Acho said he asked Metcalf why he decided to compete in this?
“Myself, everybody else is scared to do it,” he told him.
Metcalf’s performance had many around the NFL tuned in as well, with several players from Patrick Mahomes to Metcalf’s quarterbacks, Russell Wilson, commending the receiver’s performance.
