KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The challenge has been laid down. All that's separating Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson and Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles from deciding the fastest man in Kansas City sports is about 300 yards of parking lot between Kauffman Stadium and Arrowhead Stadium.

Probably the folks in charge of their teams, too.

The match race is unlikely to ever happen in the city that produced former 100-meter world-record holder Maurice Green. There's too much injury risk to line them up just for fun.

Sure is a compelling conversation piece, though.

Dyson has swiped 25 bases in just 60 games this season, and said ``I'm not afraid of nobody.'' Charles is the former junior Olympian who said, ``If he wants to put on a show, I'm never going to back down from anyone.''
