Track and field legend Usain Bolt has poured cold water on Kansas City Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill hopes of making it to Toyko 2020 Olympic Games.
Hill told reporters last month that after this football season, which his Kansas City chiefs team won, he would try out for USA’s Olympic team in the 200m.
“No, there’s no chance,” Bolt was quoted by NBC saying.
“A lot of people think it’s about one-off runs, but it’s rounds that really show who you are and the amount of work you do. So I think no, he wouldn’t make the team,” explained Bolt.
The 25-year-old Kansas City Chiefs receiver, who has not competed since the 2014 indoor season, has personal best times of 10.19 and 20.12 for 100m and 200m, set as a junior.
But the World’s Fastest Man believes it would be easier for him to play American football.
“I think my hands are good, and I know I’ve got the speed,” he said.
