Usain Bolt vs. Chris Johnson in the 50 yard dash!?!
This is something we'd like to see, however ESPN is reporting that Bolt is ducking Johnson, a Tennessee Titans running back, with Bolt's camp claiming that it would interfere with his training. Johnson's reply to this was "We got word two days ago. He don't want to do it. He only wants to run the 100, he don't want to run the no 50, he'll do it is if he runs the 100." We call Bolt out on this, and the claim that it would interfere with his training, it would be, at that at the very least, a nice little workout for him. Apparently, he likes the idea of being the 'world's fastest man' without having to back it up. I want to see it happen.

Bolt's manager, Ricky Simms, recently contacted LetsRun.com, claiming all of the story is false, “Neither Usain Bolt nor anyone from his management team have been contacted or approached about this race. We have only been reading about it in the media. I have no idea where this is coming from or who is making it up.”
