Athletics: Gay says he's pain-free, ready to beat Bolt
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Tyson Gay is finally injury-free and says he has "no excuses" for not beating Usain Bolt.
The fastest man in the world this year, he acknowledged his frustration on Wednesday at dealing with hip, groin and hamstring pain while Bolt piled up world records and gold medals.
"It just was maddening for so long," said the American, who won sprint double gold at the 2007 world championships before the Jamaican started dominating the following year.
"It's finally over and done with," Gay told reporters ahead of his headline appearance in the 100 metres at the Athletissima Diamond League meeting on Thursday.
