Why wait for the Olympics for the mainstream to give a damn about track and field? All you need is Kevin Hart, some slick “gamesmanship” (read: cheating) and an unsanctioned sprinting showdown and you’ve already got a must-see sporting moment.
In the latest example of no one being able to outhustle the diminutive comedian, Hart ran into two-time LSU All-American Jada Martin and wrangled himself a one-on-one footrace with the athlete. She can run the 60m in 7.34 seconds and Hart… well, let’s just say he’s not being scouted for the U.S. national team. Dude definitely has his celebrity jock bonafides, though.
So in the battle between a mega-skilled sprinter and a dude with a mouth that travels at breakneck speeds, who do ya got? Well, if you hit play on the video above, you got some compelling video evidence that you should always bet on whoever’s gonna shamelessly cheat to win.
Hart, who did show quality wheels even if he got a bit sneaky, peppered Martin with some playful trash talk after the W. C’mon, you expected Kevin Hart to go silent after pulling this off? That’s part of the fun of having the dude show up and flex his athletic muscles. Let’s see how many hashtags the Real Husbands of Hollywood star can squeeze into his Instagram recollection of this 50-yard dash. (Hint: Bet the over.)
Seeing as this is an unsanctioned showdown, history will kinda-sorta remember Hart as the winner with maybe a bit of an asterisk. How about a rematch in a couple months? Best of 3? Best of 5? Let’s see where this goes.
