Gay remains on track

After Tyson Gay finished his sixth and final 100-meter sprint on a warm and humid day in Clermont, Fla., he walked to a nearby shaded bench and crashed. He sat down for a few seconds, and then stretched out along the metal bleacher. It was painful progress. The former world champion is getting closer to a full recovery from a hip injury that cost him part of last year. He held an open workout Friday at the National Training Center, showing he’s healthy and ready to defend his 100-meter title at the U.S. Olympic trials in June. “The trials are tough,” Gay said. “I know all these guys are going to be gunning for me, gunning for that spot, gunning for glory. I want to defend my championship and get to London.” – Associated Press
