Retired Olympic runner Usain Bolt doesn’t want to face “The Freeze.”

Responding to a tweet by NBC Sports Philadelphia that theorized Bolt is the costumed runner in the Atlanta Braves’ promotion “Beat the Freeze”, Bolt wrote “The Freeze” is too quick for him to race.

"The Freeze", who raced in the SunTrust Park outfield all last season, won his first race of the 2018 season Thursday on Opening Day.
