    I’m just wondering why there’s no story here about Tyson Gay’s 44.89 run over the weekend….

    @Nathaniel. Track alert blog has the Tyson Gaye news. I would hope she get the JA record but its still early in the season. Tyson time was great also.

    Thanks Bayreuth. As soon as I posted the comment, I checked on Trackalerts, and there the article was. I must say congrats to Tyson for becoming the first sprinter to have PRs under 10, 20, and 45(Xavier Carter almost did it in 08), although Bolt, despite not running the 400 in an individual race, ran that 43.58 split, so kudos to him too.
