Kevin Hart races LSU sprinter Jada Martin
Jada Martin, 20, is a two-time All-American sprinter from LSU, and her biggest competition is… Kevin Hart? The comedian crashed the university’s track and field team before a recent practice and competed against the athlete in an impromptu street race that yielded surprising results.
“This the type of stuff that happens on a regular day in my life,” Hart wrote on Instagram. “I ran into [LSU Track & Field] in Birmingham, Al & I challenged Jada Martin who is a amazing athlete to a 50yd dash & because I’m such a amazing athlete I whooped her behind.”
Perhaps, but astute viewers may notice Hart gave himself a head start. (Fans may remember Hart also cheated in a race with Olympian Usain Bolt.)
In video posted online by the actor and LSU, Hart is heard shouting, “We got a scholarship to LSU.” Martin and her team, which competed at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships this weekend, thanked Hart for “a few laughs before practice.”
