Tyson Gay thinking twice about surgery

KAWASAKI–Coming off the second-fastest 100 meters in history, Tyson Gay is having second thoughts about undergoing surgery on his sore left groin after the season.

Gay, in Japan for today’s Super Track and Field Meet at Todoroki Stadium, said at a press conference Tuesday that winning in 9.69 seconds in Shanghai on Saturday has made him reconsider his medical schedule.

"About the surgery situation, when I crossed the finish and seen the time, I had second thoughts about getting surgery because I can run with the pain, it’s just annoying," Gay said.

"When I go home and get looked at, I think I’m going to get a second opinion and just see what the best situation is for me."

Gay, the triple gold medalist at the 2007 world championships in Osaka, has been plagued by the injury this season, but still managed to finish second at the IAAF world championships in Berlin in a career-best and U.S. record 9.71. …..Read More
