WATCH: Kevin Hart can run pretty fast

Video shows Philly comedian racing LSU track star

One of Philadelphia's shortest funniest celebrities is actually pretty darn fast on his feet, even if he has to bend the rules to show off his speed. The LSU Track and Field team posted a video on social media Thursday of Hart racing junior sprinter Jada Martin before practice. Hart appears to beat Martin in the video, but a closer look shows he actually got a head start. Watch it below:

Hart said on his Instagram page he ran into the team while in Birmingham, Alabama. He gave props to Martin but added he "whooped her behind."

The comedian may have gotten some practice when he led an impromptu 5K through Philly before his historic show at Lincoln Financial Field. And despite the clear cheating in the video, it seems like Hart is quite the athlete. Maybe he could play running back for the Eagles? Word on the street is they may need a new one.
