DK Metcalf has determined to take his skills from the soccer area to the observe this offseason. In line with a tweet from USATF (USA Monitor and Subject), the Seattle Seahawks speedster will likely be racing within the USATF Golden Video games which will likely be stay at 1:30 PM PT on NBC this Sunday (Might 9).
Within the video posted by DK, which was then quote tweeted by USATF, he seems to be selling his participation within the race as some kind of publicity stunt for his cleats sponsor Beneath Armour. The video from the Tweet is solely simply Metcalf dropping his Beneath Armour observe sneakers onto a observe and the display screen flashes “Might ninth.”
In line with NBC Sports activities, Metcalf will likely be taking part within the 100 meters, nonetheless, it’s unknown if DK is doing this solely as a publicity stunt for Beneath Armour, or if he’s genuinely making an attempt to qualify for the US Olympic trials that are set to happen in June.
I do not know or evaluation of how he’ll do, as it’s unfair to make use of his NFL Mix 40 yard sprint time since that is 100 meters and two years later, or his 100-yard dash final season when he saved a pick-six in opposition to the Arizona Cardinals since he was in full pads and in a very completely different situation. Nevertheless, the NBC Sports activities article referenced above says that he should end with a time of simply over 10 seconds to qualify for the Olympic Trials, and I’d by no means doubt DK Metcalf’s pace or his coaching routine.
