DK Metcalf took to the track this weekend at the USA Track & Field Golden Games and turned in a solid showing, despite coming in last place.
The Seattle Seahawks WR turned in a blazing 10.36 which is incredibly impressive for a 6-foot-3 and 235-pound NFL player. His first gear was legit in the 1st half of the race, but he was unable to sustain it to find a second gear in the final 50 meters.
After the race he revealed another interesting thought, when Emmanuel Acho approached him and asked why he chose to even enter the race.
“Myself, everybody else is scared to do it,” the Seahawks wide receiver responded.
His last place finish means that he’ll miss out on qualifying for this summer’s Olympic Trials.
He will now get ready to have an even better 2021 season after he hauled in 83 passes for 1,303 yards in 2020.
