American Tyson g*y, Sprints Fastest 100m of the Year
American sprinter Tyson g*y, buoyed by his first ever success against Jamaican spearhead Usain Bolt. He carried on his rich vein of sprinting form posting the best time of the year in the Diamond League meeting in London.
g*y posted the fastest time in the 100 metres category this year, as he tore through the track in the meet, which was not attended by Bolt, as well as Asafa Powell two athletes who are nursing injuries.
The American ensured that he capitalizes on his oozing confidence after overcoming the psychological barrier of going past Bolt for the first time ever in a meaningful competition to record a time of 9.78 seconds, at the prestigious meet, a part of the Diamond League series.
The American who has remained in the shadow of Bolt in recent years, made sure that he makes the most of his nemesis absence, taking control of the race from the outset in what is regarded as the toughest event in athletics.
After the end of the race, g*y was seen hobbling in pain and it looked like that he had joined the ranks of the walking wounded.
However, he told media that he had a light groin strain that he was set to overcome in a few days, and it wasn’t something that has worried him.
The 100 metre race drew curtains on what was an action packed day at the meet, which is set to conclude on Saturday.
Whilst g*y captured the most attention, he had Yohan Blake of Jamaica with a time of 9.89 behind him, with Trinidad and Tobago's Richard Thompson ending at the third spot with a time of 10.05 seconds.
Elsewhere Canada's Priscilla Lopes-Schliep also recorded a win with a record time of 12.52 in the 100 metre hurdles.
The Canadian recovered to beat, Australia's Sally Pearson who was the fastest of the blocks yet had to settle with a time of 12.61.
The third position was taken by Lolo Jones of USA with a time of 12.66.
In the 200 meters race Allyson Felix of USA recorded a win with a time of 22.37.
He was followed by Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie of Bahamas, who posted a time of 22.88, whilst Jamaica's Sherone Simpson finished with a time of 23.04.
There were some riveting performances in the Women's draw also as Ethiopian world 5000 metre champion Tirunesh Dibaba recorded a win in 14:36.41.
Kenya's Vivian Cheruiyot was the runner up with a time of 14:38.17, while another Ethiopian, Sentayehu Ejigu was at the third spot posting a time of 14:39.24.
American Bershawn Jackson recorded a win over Puerto Rico's Javier Culson in the 400 metre hurdles.
He clocked a time of 48.12 with the runner-up just 0.05 seconds behind; the third spot in the category was won by local David Greene in 49.09.
The triple jump event was nailed by Sweden’s Christian Olsson who posted a time of 17.41 metres.
In the high jump event, the undisputed King Blanka Vlasic of Croatia topped the standings with a leap of 2.01.
