Having finally beaten world and Olympic champion Usain Bolt over 100 meters for the first time in Stockholm last week, American sprinter Tyson Gay is seeking another Diamond League victory in London on Friday.

The field will be missing two of Bolt's main competitors Usain Bolt announced earlier in the week that his season was over due to a back injury, and Asafa Powell decided to withdraw from the London meet with his own back issues.

But despite both Jamaican's absence, Gay isn't taking victory for granted.

Former World 100m champion Tyson Gay said, "I think it was a little bit of both. It was a victory, 'cause nothing can replace a victory, no matter if you run fast and lose nothing can replace that. And it was actually a stress reliever. I received the question a lot about 'can you beat Usain Bolt' or 'can you come close to beating him. He's unbeatable.' So it's a stress relief as well."
