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.
