Colorado Rapids defender hits sprint speed faster than any UEFA Champions League player this season

Colorado Rapids defender Moïse Bombito is one of the fastest soccer players in the world. The 24-year-old Canadian international posted an insane top speed of 23.16 miles per hour during the Rapids’ 2-2 draw vs. Inter Miami on Saturday.

The Rapids posted several clips of their speedster with Major League Soccer confirming Bombito’s top speed.

That sprint speed is faster than his Canada teammate Alphonso Davies who has a top speed of 22.69 mph. In fact, Bombito would be the fastest player in Bundesliga history surpassing Borussia Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi who can sprint at 22.77 mph.

Very few players in the world are capable of getting over the 23-mph mark. The Rapids have a special one on their hands.

A look at the top speeds posted in the 2023-24 Champions League reveals that Bombito has a faster speed than any of those players this season.

According to UEFA, the fastest speed recorded in Europe’s biggest competition this season is 23.11 mph posted by Paris Saint-Germain defender Nuno Medes. Bombito has a slight edge.

Kylian Mbappé is one of the players faster than Bombito as the Frenchman hit 23.61 mph during a game against Monaco several years ago. He hasn't posted a faster speed than the Rapids defender this season.

If you’re curious, Usain Bolt is still comfortably quicker than any player with a ridiculous top speed of 27.33 mph in his prime.
