Bolt, Gay clash in London still forthcoming

By Gary Smith, World-Track

EUGENE — Usain Bolt and Tyson Gay could meet each other over 100-metres at next month’s London Grand Prix, but a decision is still imminent, according the meeting organizers.

The Olympic champion and world record holder Bolt has already signed up for the two meeting and discussion are being held with the management of Gay about a possible showdown with the Jamaican.

A decision, however, is still forthcoming.

"If I don’t know by Sunday night I guess all bets are off," meeting director Ian Stewart was quoted as saying.

"Last week I would have said 50-50. This week I would have said I don’t know."

The Aviva London Grand Prix will be from July 24-25 at Crystal Palace.

Last year Bolt breezes to victory in the 200m before setting a world record in Beijing weeks later and he is looking to once again validate himself for the Berlin Championships at the event.

"I’m definitely looking forward to running in London," he said earlier. "I normally base myself there during the summer so it is like a second home.

"As usual there will be strong competition but I guess that’s what I’ll need ahead of the World Championships."
