Over to track and field, and the spotlight continues to shine on American sprinter Tyson Gay. He grabbed all the attention among the runners in the 100-meter final at the Diamond League meet in London on Friday.
The men's 100 metre final was the most hotly anticipated race of the day at Crystal Palace. Jamaican duo Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell both sat out due to injury. Fans expected Tyson Gay to dominate and he delivered with the world's fastest 100 meter time of the season.
Gay beat Bolt in Stockholm earlier this month, and he overcame cold, damp conditions and a less than perfect start to storm down the track. Gay led across the line in 9.78 seconds. Jamaican Yohan Blake finished second,while Richard Thompson of Trinidad & Tobago was third.
Spectators also expected a great duel in the men's 400 metre hurdles final. American Bershawn Jackson was the favorite in this race, and the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist crossed the line first in an incredibly tight finish.
Jackson held off a tough challenge by up-and-coming Javier Culson from Puerto Rico to hit the stripe in a time of 48.12 seconds. European gold medal winner David Greene came third.
Finally, Beijing Olympic silver medallist Yarelis Barrios of Cuba produced a strong performance in the women's discus event. A toss of 65.62 metres gave Barrios the gold medal.
