I hope they keep this up all weekend. Big tailwind (3+ mps) just like last year.

Gay 9.75 (+3.4)

I hope Gay leaves now while he’s in one piece- after a long time away from the event he is at risk and should not be tempted to hang around hoping for a legal run. There’s time for that later.

agreed. really doubt he’s gonna stick around anyway

I hope you’re right but count on the fact that every swinging dick with a motive is after him to run more with all kinds of “advice”, ranging from shoe sponsor to federation to TV broadcasters.
I can hear it all now: “Just think what you’ll run next time when you put everything into it!”
I hope he has the sense to leave. If he has a coach there, I think he will be advised to leave but it seems like his coaching situation is very unclear.
Gay went for therapy to a well known guy about a month ago and was asked about his coach and he said he didn’t have one!

lol, so there was the dude who went to prison, then drummond, and now he’s on his own? Does he know thatt much about sprint training himself to run a 45.xx/19.58/9.75 all in their 1st of the season? kinda odd…

Maybe he reads this forum!

loll. :D:p

video of the run: http://ow.ly/15GarZ

Yeah, he’s been listening to Charlie about doing overspeed with the wind.

They (Gay and Drummond) actually said before the NC that Gay was only going to do 1 heat…

He’s done:

Gay runs wind-aided 9.75 in Oregon

Associated Press

EUGENE, Ore. – It took Tyson Gay only 9.75 seconds to prove that, yes, he’s healthy, and leave the rest of the world wondering what he might do next.

With a helping wind at his back, America’s best-known sprinter ran the 100 in the seventh-fastest time under any conditions Thursday, then exited stage right, not to be seen again at the U.S. championships.

About a half hour after he ran, Gay’s coaches confirmed he wouldn’t be racing again this week.


“Gay went for therapy to a well known guy about a month ago and was asked about his coach and he said he didn’t have one!”

Gay answered this way so that the subject would not go any further.


So who is/are the mystery coach(es)?

USATF still lists Lance Brauman and Jon Drummond.

Same thing I was thinkin. Get charlies books and vids and your set.

Carmelita Jeter 10.72 +3.0

Commentator said fastest all conditions time in 10 years.

Bernard Williams made the final with 10.24w… wtf
