1 Gay runs fastest 100m of year on Mon May 06, 2013 7:52 am


American sprinter Tyson Gay laid down an impressive early-season marker on Saturday, winning the 100 metres at the Jamaica Invitational athletics meeting in 9.86 seconds.
Gay, winner of the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4x100 metres world titles in 2007, recovered from a poor start to roar past Jamaican Nesta Carter who was second in 10.03 with American Darvis Patton third in 10.05.
Gay became the first sprinter to run under 10 seconds in the 100 metres this season, which will be highlighted by the world championships in Moscow in August.
Gay, 30, is the second-fastest performer of all time in the 100 metres behind Jamaican world record-holder Usain Bolt, who was slated to run the 200 metres at Kingston but pulled out with a hamstring strain.
Gay, hindered by injuries in recent years, said he felt better than he has in some time.
"I'm getting back to full fitness, but I am being very patient with it," Gay said. "I am feeling good, the best I have been in a long while, and I am looking forward to Moscow and will give it all I've got."
In the women's 100 metres, Jamaican Veronica Campbell-Brown - the 2012 Olympic bronze medallist - won in 11.01 seconds. American Allyson Felix, Olympic champion in the 200 metres in London last year, settled for fifth place (11.13).
