Snoop Dogg Earns His Olympic Stripes With 200-Meter Sprint

Snoop Dogg came within seconds — technically, 15.25 of them — of breaking the world record in the 200-meter dash after popping up to run the race at the U.S. Olympic Team track and field trials over the weekend in Eugene, Oregon.

Snoop had some stiff competition in the extremely unofficial trial race, running alongside four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon (who won bronze in the 200 meter at the 1996 and 2000 games) and Wallace Spearmon (a 200-meter specialist with several medals from the track and field World Championships). Of course, neither Boldon nor Spearmon has eight platinum albums, the world record for pouring up the largest gin and juice in history, and — one has to imagine — some of the strongest, most powerful lungs in human history.

Ultimately, though, it was Spearmon who won the race, with Boldon coming in second. But Snoop secured the clear moral victory by quipping of his time, “34.44 for a 52-year-old? Ain’t bad.” Trending Snoop Dogg Earns His Olympic Stripes With 200-Meter Sprint Shifty Shellshock, Frontman of Crazy Town, Dead at 49 Taylor Swift Indirectly Reminds Dave Grohl That Her Eras Tour Band Does Play Live for Over Three Hours Is a Missouri Grandma Behind the Graceland Scam?

Snoop participated in the mock race in preparation for his duties as a guest commentator at the 2024 Olympics in Paris (starting July 26). Snoop will provide special reports for the Olympics primetime show on NBC and Peacock, attending various Olympic events, visiting landmarks around Paris, and speaking with athletes, as well as their friends and families. Snoop earned the gig after an extremely successful stint providing bonus commentary on the 2021 Tokyo games alongside Kevin Hart.

Fittingly, after running his own race, Snoop picked up the mic to provide a little play-by-play action for the steeplechase — a race that famously involves jumping over a hurdle into a small pit of water.
