Karim Adeyemi can apparently keep up with Usain Bolt at 30 meters. That’s why the BVB star doesn’t dream of the Olympics.
Borussia Dortmund’s offensive player Karim Adeyemi spoke in an interview about his enormous speed – and jokingly ruled out participating in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
Adeyemi was measured on the first 30 meters with a time of 3.60 seconds. The amazing thing about it: track and field superstar Usain Bolt needed a little longer for his 100-meter world record in 2009 (9.58 seconds) for the first 30 meters, 3.78 seconds to be precise.
In an interview with Sky Sports Asked whether it would be possible to take part in the 2024 Olympics at such a pace, Adeyemi replied with a laugh: “No, I don’t think so. I can’t. I’m concentrating on football.”
In his opinion, however, he is the fastest player in football, Adeyemi emphasized: “Yes, I think so. I’m pretty self-confident.” Maybe there is someone who comes close to him in terms of speed. “But not faster,” the 21-year-old continued.
Adeyemi switched from RB Salzburg to Dortmund last summer for 30 million euros.
The German international has played 29 competitive games for BVB so far this season. Adeyemi scored nine goals and six assists.
