Snoop Dogg Runs 200m At 2024 Olympic Trials Faster Than Expected

Rapper Snoop Dogg, who is most known for his music tracks, decided to take his talents to the actual track and run the 200-meter dash at the Summer Olympic U.S. trials.

At 52 years old, the Long Beach native participated in a half-lap sprint running against Trinidadian track and field athlete, Ato Boldon (4x Olympic medal winner), and 2x NCAA 200m champion, Wallace Spearmon Jr. So needless to say, Snoop was outmatched against Boldon, 50, and Spearmon, 39.

However, no one had more swag than Snoop, who was sporting an American flag track suit, and a Team USA shirt that paid respects to NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

"34.44 for a 52-year-old? Ain't bad," Snoop Dogg said after finishing in third place behind the Olympic sprinters.

As a guest commentator for NBC, he also added a comedic perspective to the men's 3000m steeplechase race.

"What we're about to see right now is they're about to get to dipping, gripping, riding, slipping and hopefully not sliding."

"Oh he's jumping on top of the hurdle," Snoop Dogg said in shock. "You can do that? That was a cold trick right there, I like that one. Went off the tippy-top."

Fans can expect to see much more from Snoop Dogg, who will be making appearances during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

In other news, track star Sha'Carri Richardson had the fastest 100m time at the Olympic trials (10.71 seconds), which means she secured her spot for the upcoming 2024 Games. To note, she also had the fastest time during the 2021 trials ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, but was unable to compete after receiving a suspension, since she tested positive for marijuana. That is to say, Snoop Dogg can surely sympathize with the fastest woman in America.
