Robert Gill got his fifteen minutes of internet fame today when he ran 25 mph on a treadmill. Well, Chad Johnson must have smelt publicity in the water because now we have a video of the former NFL great showing off his sprinting talents.
The three-time all-pro receiver even decided to up the ante. Ochocinco didn’t match Gill’s speed (25 mph) but he did add an incline. For Johnson’s stunt he ran 24 mph at a 2.5% incline.
So now, the eternal question has to be asked. Is 25 mph on a treadmill more impressive than 24 mph on an inclined treadmill? That’s still up for debate but there is one thing that we know for certain: The 35-year-old receiver still has some life in those legs.
Here’s the video of Chad Ochocinco’s treadmill video.
On a side note, let’s hope that this doesn’t become an internet meme. Because frankly, 99% of the world can’t do what Chad Johnson and Robert Gill can do. Of course, it would be funny to watch them try.
