Watch: Seahawks WR DK Metcalf runs 100M at USATF Golden Games

DK Metcalf may not be heading to the Olympics, but the Seahawks wide receiver showed Sunday he can hang with the best in the world in the 100 meters.

Less than a week after Metcalf announced in a social media post that he would compete in the USA Track & Field Golden Games at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif., he finished ninth in his heat with a time of 10.36 seconds on Sunday.

Though Metcalf didn’t win, he still had an eye-popping time for somebody with limited track training ahead of the event and who also carries a much larger frame – 6 foot 4, 229 pounds – than your typical sprinter.

Overall, Metcalf’s time was 15th out of 17 runners in the event, and the real highlight is that his time was better than the 10.5 seconds many people predicted he would run.

Watch Metcalf’s run in the video below – and while I will tell you he’s in lane 2, I trust you would be able to figure it out pretty quickly on your own because only one of the sprinters looks like DK Metcalf.

So what’s next for Metcalf? While he clearly had a good time seeing how he would fare against world-class sprinters, his mind is back on the 2021 season with the Seahawks, saying in a post-race interview that he has minicamp to go to.

Even if that was Metcalf’s last race of this sort, it was something to see how the speed that allowed him to chase down and stop Arizona safety Budda Baker from finishing off a pick-six last season translates on the track.
