Tyson Gay targets Beijing sprint treble

3 September 2007

Sprint king Tyson Gay has confirmed he will be going for three golds at the Olympics in China next summer.

Gay, 25, won the men's 100m and 200m at this week's World Championships in Osaka before helping the United States team to 4x100m relay gold.

"Yes, I want to do all three," he said when asked about his plans for Beijing.

"Never in a million years did I think I would win three golds (in Japan)," added Gay, who emulated compatriot Maurice Greene in achieving the feat.

"At US national championships (where he also won the 100 and 200m) you were trying to make the team. Here you were trying to make history."

Gay had never previously won a medal at a global event, said: "Mentally and physically, my body is drained.

"I could easily have gotten third in the 200m, or maybe no medal - it would not have taken away from my victory in the 100m.

"But I stepped up and redeemed myself from my past," he said referring to his fourth place in the 2005 Worlds 200m in Helsinki.
