Watch: Utrecht's Richairo Zivkovic runs blistering-fast, full-field sprint, scores

Friday September 23rd, 2016

In the final seconds of FC Utrecht's KNVB Beker (Dutch Cup) triumph over FC Twente on Thursday, Dutch winger Richairo Zivkovic turned in an Olympic-level sprint to score the match-sealing goal.

The 20-year-old Zivkovic, on loan from Ajax, ran 100 meters in 10.96 seconds, according to the Fox Sports broadcast of the match, before scoring into an empty net to secure the win and passage into the next round. Twente had pushed everyone, including its goalkeeper, forward in search of an equalizer while down 2-1. Upon the clearance, Zivkovic took off. Utrecht advanced the ball up the field leaving Twente's Mateusz Klich in the dust, and he finished into a vacated net to ice the 3-1 victory.

For comparison's sake, the Netherlands' best showing at the 100-meter dash in Rio at the 2016 Olympics was Churandy Martina's 10.22 in the quarterfinal round.
