American football's 'fastest man' Johnson believes he could beat Bolt in 40-yard race
Washington, Aug 10(ANI): Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson, who is widely regarded as American football's fastest man, has said he could beat the world's fastest man Usain Bolt in a short race.
Johnson said Bolt is the greatest athlete to participate ever in the Olympics, but added that he could beat him in a 40 yard dash.
"He is a great athlete. I think he'll be the best track athlete to ever compete in the Olympics," The New York Daily News quoted Johnson, as saying.
"I feel like if I would have kept training for track I'd have a chance (to beat Bolt), but I play football and he runs track, so it's totally different," he added.
"I think I could still probably beat him in the 40 (yard dash, a common measure of NFL speed). If I actually trained for the distance he trained for, I think I'd have a chance," he said.
Johnson said his fastest time in the 100 meters as a high school track star was 10.3. Bolt's London time was 9.63 and his world record still stands at 9.58.
Johnson ran a 4.24 at his NFL Scouting Combine 40-yard dash back in 2008, the fastest ever since the league implemented electronic timing. (ANI)
