    DK Metcalf runs a 10.37 100m sprint

    DK Metcalf did not run fast enough in the 100 meters Sunday to advance to the finals in his professional track debut.

    But the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver fared better than some expected for an NFL player competing against some of the world's top sprinters. With an official time of 10.37 seconds, Metcalf finished last among the nine in his heat and 15th among the 17 who competed in the USA Track and Field Golden Games and Distance Open in Walnut, California.

    "These are world-class athletes," Metcalf said afterward on NBC streaming service Peacock, which broadcast the event, when asked whether he learned anything by competing in the event. "They do this for a living. It's very different from football speed, from what I just realized. So, like I said, just excited to be out here."

    American Isiah Young had the lowest time of the first two heats of the 100 meters with a 10.09. The two times Metcalf beat were 10.38 (Derick Silva of Brazil) and 10.44 (American Maurice Eaddy).

    5% slower than Usain Bolt's worst run.
    8% slower than Usain Bolt's world record.

    Back in the late 1920s/early 1930s it would have been considered a fast run by competitive standards.

    Metcalfs time itself isnít really that impressive, I mean there are high school kids that put up similar times.

    What is impressive though is that metcalf is literally built like a linebacker and putting up these times. That is extremely impressive.
