Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is just over 200 yards shy of the all-time single season rushing record, but it seems he has a new goal in mind already – Olympic athlete.

Peterson says he is going to start running track in an attempt to qualify for the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“I feel like I can stand up to any challenge,” Peterson said. “I know a lot of people laugh and be like ‘come on, let’s be real with yourself — it’s Usain Bolt,’ but I feel like you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.”

Peterson needs 208 yards against the Packers today to set the single season mark.
