Tyson Gay not in Jason Gardener's medal pick

31 July 2008

By Simone Goss

Great Britain's Olympic relay gold medallist, Jason Gardener believes fellow countryman Simeon Williamson can win a medal in the men's 100m at the Beijing Olympic Games next month.

Gardener believes Jamaican World record Usain Bolt and his countryman Asafa Powell, the two fastest man ever over the distant are far and beyond the rest of the competitors at the moment.

He, however, feels Williamson could sneak in and beat out even the likes of World sprint double champion Tyson Gay, who is currently nursing an injury and world silver medallist Derrick Atkins from the Bahamas for a bronze.

"You've got two guys in Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell who are on a different planet to the others," Gardener said in the Telegraph Thursday.

"But there is no reason a guy like Simeon should not be looking at sneaking a bronze."
