D.K. Metcalf is a world-class athlete. It was fully put on display when the 6′ 4″, 229-LB WR chased down Budda Baker to deny a pick-6 during a regular season game last year. He clocked a top speed of 22.64 miles per hour while chasing down an interception return, covering 114.8 total yards.
The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver is now set to put his speed to the test. Metcalf is entered in the 100m at Sunday’s USATF Golden Games and Distance Open at Mt. SAC, according to USA Track and Field.
If Metcalf could actually run 22.64 mph for an entire 100m, it would take 9.88 seconds, which would be impossible from a block start from zero mph.
In 2016, a 10.16 earned a place at Trials.
To qualify for the Olympics Trials, Metcalf would likely need to break 10.2 seconds while 10.05 automatically would qualify him.
