40-Yard Dash??

I Coulda Run It In Under 4.0 Seconds!

Carl Lewis — one of the greatest U.S. track athletes EVER — says he would’ve eaten the 40-yard dash alive … telling TMZ Sports his time would’ve been in the THREES!!!

“Track guys that run it, run it under 4. So, under 4 seconds. Yeah.”

Obviously, that time is BLAZING fast … in the NFL combine last month, only six guys even broke the 4.40 mark.

In fact, the fastest dude in the entire event was Mississippi safety Zedrick Woods — who clocked in an official time of 4.29.

But Lewis tells us even though he’s never run it — he’s pretty sure he could’ve gotten into the 3s … telling us that’s just what elite track guys do.

Think he’s exaggerating? Maybe just a little … current U.S. track star Christian Coleman took a swing at the 40 in 2017 — and while he set it on fire — his time was just out of the 3-second range at 4.12.

BUT … Usain Bolt DID just run a 4.22 at the NFL’s event a couple weeks ago, and that was without proper training AND in street clothes … two years into his retirement.

So could Lewis have done it?? Who knows … but let the office debates begin!!!
