Earlier this year, John Ross broke the NFL Scouting Combine record with a 4.22 second 40-yard dash. But Tennessee sprinter Christian Coleman wanted to remind the world that there’s a difference between being fast for a football player and world class track speed.
It all started when Ross said he could beat track and field legend Usain Bolt in the 40-yard dash.
Well, Coleman caught a hold of those comments and decided to prove Ross wrong. Coleman, who ran for the United States in the 4×100 at the Rio Olympics, wasted no time proving that the training sprinters receive allow them to destroy any time we’ve seen at the combine.
Coleman was electronically timed in a video shared by Tennessee’s track team, which shows the Olympian running a blistering 4.12 seconds.

WOOOOO! That boy is flying. Sorry, John Ross, we don’t think you’d be able to beat Usain Bolt.
