Tyson Gay grabs 100 meters at London Grand Prix
American track and field athlete Tyson Gay was spotted preparing for the 2012 Olympics in London. Gay at the preparation won the 100 meters at the London Grand Prix under dreary conditions on July 13, 2012.
The former world champion managed to win in just 10.3 seconds in a head wind of 1.2 meters per second, ahead of Nesta Carter if Jamaica and Ryan Bailey from US. Gay said, “I’m in pretty good shape, I just need to work on some things on my groin area with my physio and I should be good to go”.
The athlete also said that he feels he knows how to mentally prepare for this type of weather and this was the best place to prepare for the games. The main rivals of Gay for the 2012 Olympics were absent.
Asafa Powell withdrew with a groin strain so as to ensure that he is fit for the games while Olympic champion Usain Bolt sidestepped the event for tax reasons. Home sprinter Dwain Chambers gave a lacklustre performance while he prepares for the games after the lifetime Olympic doping ban for British offenders was lifted. Chambers could not even qualify from the advance heats. Mo Farah enjoyed a comfortable victory in 5,000 meters in 13 minutes.
