This is a feature I did on Tyson Gay last summer for the Beijing Olympics. The soft-spoken track star is mounting a comeback this year after a hamstring injury destroyed his Olympic summer last year. He had hopes of following up his spectacular double World Championships gold in Osaka in the 100m and 200m with Olympic gold. It wasn’t to be.
Judging by his times this season, he looks like he’s headed for redemption in August in Berlin. Everyone else has already awarded the races to Usain Bolt. Promising showdown.
