Tyson Gay makes successful return to track


Former world champion Tyson Gay made a successful return to competition, running the 100 meters in 10.0 seconds into a headwind at the Adidas Grand Prix in New York. The 29-year-old American had not raced since hip surgery last July. He entered the “B” final of the 100 on Saturday to get some race experience before the U.S. Olympic trials at the end of the month. Gay (pictured right) said he felt no pain during the event and is relieved to get the jitters out. The American-record holder in the 100 won three gold medals at the 2007 world championships. But since then, he’s been overtaken by Usain Bolt of Jamaica and beset by injuries.
