DK Metcalf finished last of the United States athletes in his 100-meter sprint heat at the Golden Games on Sunday afternoon.
The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver’s time in the race was 10.37-seconds.
Metcalf had caused a sensation earlier in the week when he announced he would run the 100-meter race at the Golden Games in California in an attempt to qualify for this summer’s Olympic Trials.
Metcalf needed to complete the race in 10.05 seconds or better to qualify for an automatic berth at the Trials, which will be held in Eugene, Oregon.
“To test my speed up against world-class athletes … just having the opportunity to run against these guys was a blessing,” Metcalf said after Saturday’s race.
Metcalf is not the first athlete to compete at the top level in either sport. Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquise Goodwin competed in the 2012 London Olympics in long jump. Former Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best ran the 100-meter dash for Saint Lucia at the 2016 Rio Games. And, Renaldo Nehemiah was a world-class hurdler before he spent three seasons as a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers in the early 1980s.
