Tyson Gay injured again

25 July 2009

By Glen Andrews, World-Track

LONDON ó American sprint champion Tyson Gay has revealed that he is now carrying an injury, following his 200 metres victory at the London Grand Prix on Saturday.

Gay bolted home to 20.00seconds to win the half-lap comfortably, but admits after the race that he is again being bothered by a groin injury.

"The race went well, but I got a slight injury (to my groin)," Gay said.

"I didnít get to warm up like I wanted to because of the situation but I donít think about limping once the gun is shot, I just run. The way I slowed down it would definitely have been 19-something (seconds)."

"Iím feeling okay. Iíve been trying to keep under the radar, trying to get through this groin situation I have but I should be okay.

"My groin has been tight on me, Iím trying to take a little Advil (painkillers) to run through the pain. Iíve got to be tough about it. I donít feel it when I run, itís after.

"Iím just taking it one day at a time, itís just frustrating," Gay added. "Any time a sprinter feels any type of nagging pain they get frustrated and the mind has to get strong again.
