Injury-wary Gay chases medal dream
13 July 2012, 12:00
Tyson Gay saw his Olympic dream shattered in 2008 by a hamstring injury
and now the former world champion comes to the London Olympics after
needing nearly a year to recover from right hip surgery.
A confident Gay will test himself against Jamaican stars Yohan Blake and
Usain Bolt and fellow American Justin Gatlin in the men's 100 metres,
hoping to claim a medal in a final that comes four days before his 30th
"It's going to be tough," Gatlin said. "A lot of these guys are already
sharp and running great times. I'm just going to go fight them.
"I feel real good about my chances. Stay healthy, that's the main thing right now."
