A Reporter In Heels Just Ran The Most Impressive 40 At NFL Combine

"Still waiting to hear from my footwear sponsor."

She’s fast and fashionable.

Tori Petry, a reporter for the Detroit Lions’ website, ran a 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine in 5.98 seconds ... in heels.

OK, so her time doesn’t rival John Ross’s new record of 4.22 (watch above) but it is outstanding given her footwear.

Perhaps Petry’s feat, accomplished Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, will take the heat off Bryce Dallas Howard. The actress was mocked for trying to run from dinosaurs while she wore heels in 2015’s “Jurassic World.”

According to For The Win, Petry beat the time of 2011 combine participant Isaiah Thompson, a former University of Houston offensive lineman who clocked 6.06.

Looks like Petry has a quick wit, too.
