Odell Beckham Jr. is feeling so fast that he reached out to Usain Bolt on Twitter.

The New York Giants wide receiver clocked 21.85 miles per hour during his 61-yard touchdown catch and run on Sunday night, fastest of any ball carrier in week 14, according to the NFL.

Beckham was not the fastest NFL ball carrier this season -- Olympic long jumper Marquise Goodwin clocked 22.25 mph in September, according to the league, and others have been faster.

Bolt reportedly averaged between 23 and 28 mph during his world-record 100m of 9.58 seconds at the 2009 World Championships.

None of that stopped Beckham from tweeting his 21.85 mph video at Bolt’s account at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thursday.

Beckham’s mom was an All-American sprinter for LSU in the 1990s.
