Tyreek Hill ran very, very fast this past weekend. Well, for 200 meters, the prep super star ran 20.14, which is the second fastest prep time EVER at that distance. The folks at adidas, who sponsor the adidas Golden Stripes Track & Field Classic, sent us a nice video link from FloTrack. We have linked it below, and know that you will enjoy it.

Tyreek Hill is running at a level that could make him not only quite dangerous at the Golden Stripes 100m final, to be held in New York on June 9, at the adidas Grand Prix New York, but perhaps, the Olympic Trials? Only 12 high school preps have made US Olympic teams in the past. It will be fascinating to see how far this young man can run this year.

As someone said, out of dreams come reality.
At this weekend's adidas Golden Stripes' Golden South Classic in Orlando, Tyreek Hill scored the 2nd fastest high school record in the 200m with a time of 20.14 wearing the adizero Prime Finesse.

Oh, and the folks at adidas told us that the shoe Tyreek wore was the adidas Prime Finesse. Here is a better view of them:
