When it comes to sprinting, Usain Bolt is a beast. No doubt about it. So, we're not sure why so many American football players are coming out and saying that they could beat Bolt in a race. But, they are. First, it was Chris Johnson, who told reporters that he could definitely take Bolt in the 40-yard dash and could probably take him in the 100-meter race, too, if he had time to train properly.

He's not the only challenger, though. Michigan QB Denard Robinson also thinks he could beat Bolt in the 40-yard dash—although her doesn't sound quite as confident in the 60-yard dash or a 100-meter race.

"I've watched him run," he said yesterday, "and I'm pretty sure I can beat him in a 40-yard dash. I'd get a better start, and I could take him. At 60 yards, I'd be in trouble, and at 100 meters, he'd be gone. But, I could get him in a 40."

Hmmm…We're intrigued and we'd like to see Robinson and Bolt race just to end these debates once and for all. But, it'll probably never happen. So, who cares? Just stick to mastering your own sport, guys.
