After 9.76 run - Bolt could face Gay in New York

6 May 2008

Usain Bolt’s coach says the Jamaican sensation is aiming toward a 100-meter showdown with reigning world champion Tyson Gay at the Reebok Grand Prix on May 31 in New York.

No official announcement had been made, but Bolt’s coach Glen Mills said Wednesday that the Jamaican “is scheduled to race Tyson Gay in New York.”

Bolt’s schedule will be released on Thursday, his agent Ricky Simms said.

Bolt stunned the athletics world with the second-fastest 100 clocking in history at the Jamaican International Invitational in Kingston on Saturday. His 9.76 was 0.02 seconds off the world record held by fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell.

Gay defeated Powell to win the 100 title at last year’s World Championships, then beat Bolt to take the 200 crown in Osaka, Japan.
