Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill isn’t heading to the Super Bowl after last week’s AFC Championship loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, but he still wants all the smoke from one person in particular. The speedy receiver challenged Usain Bolt to a race and doused himself with beer at Saturday’s NHL All-Star game, also in Vegas this year.
Hill and Bolt have been going back and forth with each other on social media and during interviews as they both want to race the other, yet neither one has actually taken the time to set up the match.
Over the weeknd in Las Vegas, Hill shockingly lost to Micah Parsons, Nick Chubb and Trevon Diggs in a 40-yard-dash at the Pro Bowl, although, anybody can clearly see he wasn’t actually trying.
Hill downplayed the loss when he challenged the fastest man on the planet.
“I’m a cheetah, baby, cheetahs don’t lose to lions. I don’t want to show the world what I really got because I’m saving it all for Usain Bolt,” Hill said, according to Jared Bush of Fox 4. “I’m baiting Usain Bolt into coming out of retirement to race me.”
That did not matter to Bolt as he took to Twitter and responded to the most recent challenge by destroying him with a photo from the race.
Hill called out Bolt multiple times last year, even stating that he’d be willing to wager his Super Bowl ring in a race against the sprinting legend.
We shall see if it ever happens.
