Athletics: Sport SHORTS - Gay is an easy winner.
ATHLETICS: Tyson Gay showed a clean pair of heels to his rivals to
underline why he is co-favourite for the world 100m title in three
weeks' time. The 24-year-old American flew down the Crystal Palace
track to win the Norwich Union London Grand Prix. Against a mainly
British field, Gay never displayed the speed required to break Justin
Gatlin and Asafa Powell's world record of 9.77 seconds. And in
clocking 10.02secs the 24-year-old American failed to break his target
of a sub-10 second run on British soil for the second time in a
fortnight. But it was still an authoritative victory for Gay - who is
nursing a knee injury - and augurs well for his eagerly-awaited clash
with Powell in Osaka.
