Britney Spears is apparently really, really fast. How fast is she? Well, she makes Usain Bolt look slow.
It’s Britney, b****!
In a long line of sports articles I’ve written over the last decade, I never thought I’d write about an investigation into Britney Spears claiming to run a faster 100 than Usain Bolt, the fastest fan in the world.
Sure enough, that’s where we’re at after Spears posted on a since-deleted Instagram post that she ran a 100 in five seconds!
"“Ran my first 5 !!!!” the now-deleted screenshot of a stopwatch timer that showed 5.97 seconds. “Getting over your fear of pushing it in the beginning is key …. once I did that I hit 5 !!!!! Usually I run 6 or 7 …. my first try was 9 …. and now I did it whoop !!!!! 100 meter dash.”"
Hey, look, I never believe anything post on their social media anyway, but I mean, this is obviously not possible by a human being.
Bolt ran a record time of 9.58 in 2009. Spears is recovering from a broken foot suffered a few months ago so this is truly a remarkable recovery. Totally inspiring for all of us to stay fit and keep moving, especially when we’re all cooped up in our homes due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Of course, once Spears realized the miscommunication, she deleted the Instagram post and shared a video (which has also been deleted) saying she was joking and said she’s coming for the king and his 9.58 record.
She did keep up a video saying we need laughter more than ever. So thank you Brit for making us laugh.
Maybe we’ll see Britney at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics now that they’ve been postponed by a year. This will give her a little more time to train for the 100-meter dash. Maybe Bolt can offer to train her and give her some of his secrets?!
