Fred Kerley has made fun of Snoop Dogg's 200m race during the US Olympic trials and predicted the time he would clock if he ran the 100m.

The 2022 world 100m champion Fred Kerley has rated Snoop Dogg’s performance at the Hayward Field during the ongoing US Olympic trials.

When asked about the time he thinks the 52-year-old can run in the 100m, the Olympic Games 100m silver medallist noted that Snoop Dogg can only afford to run probably 16 or 17 seconds.

His comments come after the American rapper ran the 200m and clocked 34.44 to cross the finish line, a time Kerley found surprising.

He also gave a poor rating to Snoop Dogg’s starts, insisting that he is old, just like his father and since he knows his dad does not have a formidable start, then Snoop Dogg also has a poor start.

“Yes, I saw him…since he ran 34.44 in the 200m so he would probably run like 16.00 or 17.00 in the 100m. If I could rate his start from A to D, I’d give him an F. He is old so he is probably my dad’s age so if I say about that, I know my dad can’t start so I know he can’t start,” Kerley said in the interview with Flo Track.

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg graced the Olympic trials and even had a walk in alongside triple world champion Noah Lyles as he went to compete for the men’s 100m final.

Snoop Dogg also met up with the worlds fastest woman this year, Sha’Carri Richardson, shortly before she competed in the women’s 100m final. Both Richardson and Lyles won their respective final races with Lyles equaling his personal best time of 9.83 with Richardson clocking a world leading time of 10.71.

Snoop Dogg was also seen hanging out with Lyles’s mother, Keisha Caine during the trials. The legendary rapper is part of NBC Universal’s commentators for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This will be his second time providing coverage for NBC after working with them during the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
