VIDEO: Lions Beat Writer Runs 40-Yard Dash In Heels… Is Still Faster Than You


Rich Eisen was put to shame by Detroit Lions beat writer Tori Petry at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.

Eisen has made a tradition out of running the 40-yard dash while wearing a suit, clocking in this year at 6.02 seconds. Petry decided to try out the 40-yard dash herself and beat Eisen’s time.

But here’s the kicker: Petry was wearing heels when she ran and clocked a sub-6.0 second time.

Not too shabby!

Check out the 40-yard dash attempt below:

Petry even knows where she can shed off some time by working on her form.

Who knows, maybe we’ll get to see Petry give it another go next year. Better watch out, John Ross, she may be coming for your record.
