"Hopefully after this season, if I’m healthy and my mind is still in the right place, I really want to try to qualify for some Olympic teams,” Hill said.
Asked if he was serious about this and had looked into it, Hill said, “Yeah. Yeah, I have. I have.”
Hill acknowledged, however, that he’d have to change a lot about what he eats and how he trains, and that wouldn’t necessarily leave him in top football shape.
“But the thing is, I weigh like 195 right now. Back in high school, when I ran a 9.9[-second 100-meter dash], I was like 175. So it would be me changing my whole diet that I’ve been doing to get to where I am now,” Hill said.
Hill has 100/200 pbs of 10.19 and 20.14, both of which date back to his senior year of high school in 2012 (he said he ran 9.9 above, but that was with a +5.0 wind).
20.14 is LEGIT though -- he's the 3rd-fastest high schooler ever. I'd love to see what he could do. Would be an interesting storyline at the Trials for sure.https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/01/29/tyreek-hill-says-he-wants-to-try-out-for-the-olympics/
Your 200-meter time for him is correct but I don't see a "9.9" listed for him in the all-time top performances in all conditions.
He ran 9.98 in Juco in 2013.
