Tyson Gay Targets 4×400 Spot At London Olympic

Sprinter Tyson Gay is ready to get out of his comfort zone as he targets a place on the American 4×400 relay at the 2012 Olympic Games.

He told BBC “I want to make the 4x400m team and be part of a team with Jeremy Wariner and the others.

“I did run 44.89sec this year, but I can run faster in my next 400m races.”

“Of course the 400m is a tough event, it makes you feel dizzy in the head and miserable in the stomach, but I want to try it. I’m a tough guy as well.”

It is still left to be seen as running the 4x400m relay will mean Gay would bring a heavy load to London trying to dethrone Jamaican World record holder Usain Bolt of his title that he won at the Beijing Games in 2008.
