Drake takes V02 max test in latest music video

We're dying to know the results

Canadian superstar Drake released a music video today which was entirely shot at the Nike World Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The Nike headquarters is where the Breaking2 project was born, where Canadians Mohammed Ahmed (and soon Gabriela DeBues-Stafford) train, and is one of the biggest sporting playgrounds in the world. While at Nike, Drake sang and tried a few sports. He played baseball from a roof, tried to dunk, hit the pool for some brief underwater boxing (yes, that’s right) and finally appears to have done a V02 max test. 

(Warning: music video includes explicit language.)

At the 3:10 mark in the video, you see Drake on a treadmill with an oxygen mask. So our burning question is: what is his Vo2 max? We also want to know how different it is from Eliud Kipchoge’s, who has also had a V02 test done at Nike HQ. 

Our best guess, based on the findings from this video, is that Drake’s at least moderately active. He plays basketball, baseball and football, plus he swim-boxes and runs. If anyone knows the results of this music-video testing session, please let us know. For reference, Kipchoge comes in at a VO2max of at 78.0 ml/min/kg. The average male of Drake’s age sits around 35.0 ml/kg/min – but Drake certainly isn’t average.
