Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has long been recognized for his unique combination of size, strength and speed. The 6'4" 235-pounder put that speed to the test on Sunday, racing track stars in a 100-meter dash during the USA Track and Field Golden Games. Metcalf ultimately finished with a time of 10.36 seconds, good for ninth in his heat. A sub-10.05 second 100-meter dash would have automatically qualified Metcalf for next month's Olympic Trials.

"To test my speed up against world class athletes like this…just having the opportunity to run against these guys was just a blessing," Metcalf said.
