Tyreek Hill vs. Usain Bolt was a battle that you might have heard about earlier this year, something that you thought might be wrapped up by now. Well, think again.
Tyreek Hill is one of the fastest players in the league. That’s a well-known fact. We’re audience to his blazing speed every week he steps on to the field. Count the number of times you’ve seen Hill take the top off the defense and burn some poor cornerback or safety for a long touchdown. You probably can’t.
On the other hand, you have literally the fastest man in the world in Usain Bolt who holds the record for the fastest 100m dash time. It doesn’t really seem like it would be much of a contest would it? Well, Bolt is kind of old now, so maybe there’s a chance, but Hill believes he can topple the sprinting king.

So, when did all this madness start? Well back in about July/August, Usain Bolt came on Pat McAfee’s show and revealed that he had a back and forth with Tyreek Hill where they talked about challenging each other to a race.
“Me & Tyreek Hill got into it 1 time..
He was talking bla bla bla but then I went to the combine 1 year & if you go on the net right now.. I ran 4.22 in my sweats..

Things only escalated from there as Hill responded, asking Bolt to “line up then” and “stop hiding.” Bolt is really one to be pushed around either. He happily accepeted Hill’s challenge and even raised the stakes a little.

It appeared like things had died down there until just very recently when Tyreek Hill got back into it, saying that he’s willing to put up his Super Bowl ring, taking up Bolt’s deal.

Will this race ever take place? What is Usain Bolt going to respond with? We have no idea, but it’s all setting up for a very electric showdown.
