Usain Bolt took a casual stroll and tied the record for fastest electronic recorded 40yd dash time in history.
It’s common knowledge that Usain Bolt is fast. In fact, Bolt is the fastest person in recorded history, as he holds the record in the 100-meter dash (9.58 seconds) and 200-meter dash (19.19 seconds). He is also the only person to win both events in three consecutive Olympics. He boasts eight Olympic gold medals in his career, establishing himself as the planet’s preeminent sprinting star before his 2017 retirement.
But it’s fairly easy to say that Bolt spoiled us, as it can sometimes be easy to forget just how effortlessly fast the man really is. The 32-year-old reminded everyone Saturday, when he tied the NFL record in the 40-yard dash while wearing sweats and sneakers.
Former University of Washington — and current Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver — John Ross set the record at 2017 NFL Scouting Combine. While Bolt’s run is obviously unofficial, the impressive thing is how easily he does it. In his prime, Bolt definitely would have smashed the record.
