Titans RB Chris Johnson believes that in the right set up, Jamacia’s Usain Bolt, the man currently crowned as the “fastest man alive,” wouldn’t stand a chance against him in a race.
“I feel like if I would have kept training for track I’d have a chance, but I play football and he runs track, so it’s totally different,” Johnson said. “I think I could still probably beat him in the 40. If I actually trained for the distance he trained for, I think I’d have a chance.”
Bolt just won Gold in the 100, at the Olympics in London, breaking his previous Olympic record with a 9.63 to win his second straight 100 meters.
To be fair, Johnson hasn’t focused on track since high school but Johnson famously ran a 4.24 in the 40 during NFL combine in 2008. Maybe they can do something for charity next spring. Or just have a street race after the club like Bolt and actor Mickey Roukre did.
