Olympic Gold Medalist Challenges Chad Ochocinco to Race

Dominating one sport isn't enough anymore for today's athletes. Apparently, if you're a professional football player, specifically an egomaniacal receiver, you think your skills translate to other venues. Chad Johnson wanted to race against Michael Phelps in the pool — not to mention a horse on a track. Terrell Owens, if given a 20-yard head start, thinks he could out sprint Usain Bolt. Now Olympic athletes are firing back. American Gold medal women's sprinter Mary Wineberg, via this YouTube video, has challenged Ochocinco to 400-meter sprint:

Clearly there is only one way to settle all of this jibber-jabber: a Pentathlon between Owens, Ochocinco, Phelps, Bolt, and Wineberg. The 400-meter sprint and a swimming discipline of Phelps' choice will be the corner stone events with the remaining three up for debate. I'd suggest the future Olympic sport of pole dancing or perhaps the up-and-coming doobie-rolling competition. It's unclear what event would give an edge to the NFL stars. Perhaps the linguistic event of Jawing or the Zoolander approved Diva-off. What do you suggest? >>Olympic Gold Medalist Challenges Chad Johnson to a Race [FanHouse]
