The Freeze’s First Race of the Season Went So Well Even Usain Bolt Showed Some Respect

Baseball Is Fun

Surely you’ve heard of “The Freeze,” by now, but if you haven’t you’re in for a treat.

“The Freeze” is the alter ego of former track star Nigel Talton, who works on the grounds crew for the Atlanta Braves during the day, and defeats fans at foot races despite COMFORTABLE head starts, uh, later in those same days.

His first race of the year was yesterday, and let’s just say he’s undefeated in 2018:

After the game, Daniel Flores tweeted that “The Freeze” must clearly be Usain Bolt, famously one of the fastest runners in the world,” in disguise:

Later adding that if he didn’t respond, it was obviously him.

But Bolt did respond, and gave “The Freeze” some serious props:

Now if that’s not an endorsement of how fast “The Freeze” is, I don’t know what would be.
