Gay declares himself fit for Beijing 100m

5 August 2008

World sprint double champion Tyson Gay said he will be fit to battle for the gold medal in the 100 meters glory at the Beijing Olympics next week.

The American had been forced to miss several competitions, including a clash with Jamaican Asafa Powell in London last week with a hamstring injury, sustained in the 200 meters quarter-finals at the U.S. trials.

But Gay said his training has been going well and has no doubts he will be ready for the start of the 100 meters on August 15.

"When I step on the line in Beijing, don't worry. I'll be ready to go," Gay was quoted by the Associated Press as saying.

Gay is expected to battle with Jamaicans Usain Bolt, who soundly beat him in a world record race in New York on May 31, and former world record holder Powell, who is rounding back into shape following some injury worried at the beginning of his international campaign.
