Gay wins 100m in Sheffield, but looked to be in slight pain

15 July 2007

Tyson Gay did not get the world record he was hoping for at the Norwich Union British Grand Prix on Sunday, but he managed to come away with the 100-metre win on the wet track in Sheffield.

Gay, the top ranked sprinter in the both the 100m and 200m this season, was hoping to break the 9.77 seconds world record, set by Asafa Powell of Jamaica in 2005 at the meeting in the UK.

However, the sprinter could only run 10.13 in a headwind of -0.4m/s. More importantly though, Gay looked to have been struggling as he crossed the finish line and was seeing stretching his leg as he heads off the track.

Meanwhile, Britain’s in-form sprinter Marlon Devonish took second in 10.23 just ahead of Portugal’s Francis Obikwelu, at 10.24.

Gay is the fastest man in the world this year after posting 9.84 at the U.S. championships last month.
