Gay ready to challenge Bolt and be the best he can

By Gary Smith, World-Track

SWITZERLAND ATHLETICS ATHLETISSIMAEUGENE — American world sprint double champion Tyson Gay is ready run to his full potential as he strives to become the best.

Gay, who won the 100m and 200m at the last World Championships in Osaka, Japan two-years-ago, watched ace rival Usain Bolt matched that same feat at the Olympics last summer, but spiced it up when doing it in world records.

The 26-year-old, however, said he is ready to take things to the next level after a painful injury last year that saw him failing to make the finals in Beijing.

"I want to reach my full potential before I’m done with this sport," the American said.

"If my full potential is nine-six (9.6 seconds over 100 metres), I want to do it. I want to be the best I can be.

"If my full potential is nine-five I want to do it, I want to achieve it, and I still have goals that I haven’t achieved, like time goals and world records and things like that as well."

Gay will get his first crack at running a fast 100m time this season at the U.S. Championships in Eugene, Oregon next Thursday.
He is slated to race in just the first round, although his agent said that could change.

For winning the previous world titles, Gay gets two wild cards for the championships in Berlin later this month……
