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.
