At least there’s something you could maybe beat him at that involves moving your legs very fast.

Usain Bolt has never run a mile.

That’s what his agent told The New Yorker.


Read it yourself.

Bolt’s agent, Ricky Simms, won’t say whether he believes that his client could run a mile in less than five minutes. But Simms confirmed, over e-mail, that the world’s greatest sprinter has, in fact, never tried running that far: “Usain has never run a mile.”

Why does this even matter? I guess it’s a fun hypothetical. So there’s that. But really it’s an opportunity.

Place your bets now, because I’m 100% challenging Usain to a mile run. In the off-season, of course. In 20 years, maybe.
