Tyson Gay Has 9.58secs On His Mind

American star sprinter Tyson Gay, has one goal in mind this year, and that is to lower Usain Bolt’s 9.58secs world record in the 100m.

Gay, who will continue his build-up to the rest of the season later this evening with a 400m run at the JN-sponsored Jamaica Inter-national Invitational inside the National Stadium, is hoping to improve on his own personal best of 9.69, which is also Bolt’s former world record mark.

The 2007 Osaka World Cham-pionships triple gold medalist and Berlin 2009 World Championships silver medalist, is also looking to improve his time in the 400m, and is eyeing the possibility of running the one-lap event on a more regular basis, in order to make the USA’s 4x400m relay team in the future.

“I’ve already programmed my mind to run faster,” said Gay. “I’m thinking of 9.58 or faster this year.”….The Jamaica Gleaner
