Why do people think they can beat Usain Bolt in a race? Have they just been ignoring the Olympics lately?
The Jamaican sprinter has absolutely dominated his competition as of late. After watching him enough times, you get the sense that he is kind of just toying with his competition. He has admitted to eating McDonald’s prior to races. At the end of races, he seems to tone down the intensity a bit, just because he can. And he comes out of the blocks slow sometimes. Once again, just because he can.
First, Titans running back Chris Johnson came out and said he could do it. Given, he is one of the fastest backs in the NFL. But does he know Usain Bolt is the world’s fastest man?
Now, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is joining in on the fun.
When talking about Usain Bolt, this is what Denard Robinson had to say.
“I’ve watched him run, and I’m pretty sure I can beat him in a 40-yard dash,” Robinson said at Michigan’s media day on Sunday. “I’d get a better start, and I could take him.
“At 60 yards, I’d be in trouble, and at 100 meters, he’d be gone, but I could get him in a 40.”
I have to admit, I would love to see Bolt beat Johnson and Robinson at the same time, just to quiet their mouths. And this absolutely no disrespect to anyone, as we all know Robinson and Johnson are at an elite level when it comes to speed.
That being said, they should probably stick to football. I think fantasy football owners world-wide would also like Chris Johnson to focus on his football game, and not his track trash talk after many were disappointed after taking him very early in drafts.
There’s not much else Usain Bolt can do to shut everyone up, at this point. Isn’t running through the Olympics at a ridiculous pace and grabbing gold medals enough?
