Patrick Mahomes is ready for the Olympic
The Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mhomes has already won the Super Bowl trophy twice and already holds two NFL MVPs and two Super Bowl MVP titles, but he seems looking a lot more than this.
The hunger is huge and Patrick Mahomes said he is super ready for anything. The next big thing he is looking for is an Olympic gold medal.
During speaking to the media on Friday in Frankfurt, Germany, Patrick Mahomes said he “definitely” wants to compete in the new flag football competition being introduced for the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. But he admitted that he may not be fast enough to compete against some of the other people playing the game.
Mahomes will be 32 by the time the NFL is included in the Olympics. He also said he wants to play but understands that flag football requires a quarterback to be highly mobile.
“I definitely want to. But I’ve seen some of those guys play flag football. They’re a little faster than I am,” Mahomes said, via Sam McDowell.

“I definitely want to. But I’ve seen some of those guys play the flag football. They’re a little faster than I am,” he said. “I know there’s not like linemen blocking for you. I’ll be 31, 32 years old. So if I can still move around then, I’m going to try to get out there and throw the football around maybe in LA.”
Flag football was officially approved by the International Olympic Committee last month and will be played first time in the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles.
The Kansas City Chiefs star has passed for 2,258 yards, and 15 touchdowns with eight interceptions as Kansas City has started the season 6-2.
However, if Mahomes plays in the 2028 Olympics, he could find himself reunited with former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
Let’s see what happens and who else is interested in playing in the Flag Football.
