Adidas have offered a $100k prize to the person who runs the 40-yard dash the quickest at the NFL combine.
The 40-yard dash event is one of the most popular at the NFL combine, which is currently taking place at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
But Adidas have spiced up the event this year by offering the huge cash prize to the participant who records the quickest time wearing the company’s new adizero 5-star cleat.
It must be said that the shoes look pretty smart - although they look especially good on a mountain of dollars.
But how many of the participants will take the risk of switching footwear ahead of such an important event? It’s certainly a big gamble.
But it’s a gamble that will pay off for one speedy draft-eligible hopeful.
