Tyreek Hill, a star wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, demonstrated that on Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky, where he won the 60-meter indoor sprint during the USA Track and Field Masters Indoor Championship. The 29-year-old, who is frequently referred to be the NFL’s fastest player, recorded a time of 6.70 seconds, leaving his opponents in the dust like undersized cornerbacks.
Even yet, he didn’t make the familiar peace sign gesture that he often does while edging out a rival on the way to the end zone.
Tyreek Hill, a high school sprinting champion, was sporting a speed suit from Coffee High School. He achieved two state championships and All-American status there. He qualified for the Olympic trials in 2012 by finishing sixth in the United States in the 200 m at age 18. His time was 20.14 seconds. Hill made the decision to sit out the trials at the moment.
In a 2020 Super Bowl media day interview while playing for the Kansas City Chiefs, Hill stated that he was committed to trying to make the American Olympic track and field team.
I definitely want to attempt to qualify for some Olympic teams after this season, if I’m fit and my mentality is still in the right place, Tyreek Hill remarked at the time. “Even go to the Penn Relays; try that. Put together a relay with a few players from the football team to demonstrate to the track athletes that we used to do this in high school. I still have it. All I want to do is enjoy it.
The COVID-19 outbreak then forced the postponement of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The four-time All-Pro and Super Bowl champion is the fastest ball carrier in the NFL during the Next Gen Stats era, clocking in at 23.24 mph in 2016 on a 105-yard kickoff return that was called back due to a holding infraction. However, he was never given the chance to compete for an Olympic gold medal.
