Sport Sports World Reacts To DK Metcalf’s Olympic Qualifying News
Does Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf actually have a shot to qualify for Olympics?
Can DK Metcalf make it to the 2021 Olympics? He's seriously considering making a run at them by attempting to qualify for the 100m dash.Two years into his career, it's safe to say that Metcalf has lived up to that. In two seasons, he has averaged 70.5 catches, 1,101.5 receiving yards and 8.5 touchdowns per season for Seattle and has become one of the favorite targets of Russell Wilson. Metcalf should continue to be a great football player for a long time, but he has also set his sights on another athletic goal that he could look to accomplish this offseason.
NFL fans know thatis one of the best athletes in the league, but it might be possible that he’s actually one of the best in the world. We’ll find out this weekend when the wideout puts his gifts to the test.
It was announced on Monday that Metcalf will compete in the United States Track and Field Golden Games in the 100-meter dash.
The idea of Metcalf competing in a 100-meter dash was thrown around last fall after he chased down Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker with a top speed of 22.64 miles per hour. In fact, the USATF sent Metcalf a message after the video of him taking down Baker went viral.
