Gay's Last 100 In Manchester Street 150: 8.86
(from Mark Butler)

Powerade ION4 Great City Games Manchester – May 15, 2011


All races were on a specially-constructed straight track in the town centre.

It wasn’t the best of days for fast sprinting, in fact it was wet and chilly. Yet for two-thirds of his 150m, Tyson Gay was on pace for a world best.

The organisers again generously provided photo-finish timings at 50m intervals, so we learnt that Gay’s first two splits were 5.65 and 9.91. Exactly the same as Usain Bolt during his 14.35 here two years ago.

But whereas the Jamaican finished with a 4.44 last 50m, Gay slowed to 4.60, covering his last 100m in 8.86 (Bolt 8.70). The American’s en-route times during his 19.41 straight 200m last year were 5.69, 9.89 and 14.41, but then conditions were far better.

Women’s straight sprints don’t have as much history as the men’s, but it’s safe to say that the en-route 150m and final 200m times of Allyson Felix today (16.48 / 22.12) were the fastest ever run on a straight track. There could never have been official records because the following wind was 2.6, but it was clear that this was an exceptional performance from the yawning margin between her and the new European Champion Myriam Soumaré.

Analysis of Felix’s splits reveal that her 100m between 50m (6.30) and 150m was 10.18. Her second full 100m was 10.86, but that wasn’t the fastest closing 100m by a women on the day. That was Abiodun Oyepitan’s 10.84 flying 100m which came after a sluggish start to her 150m.

One world best which did fall was Andy Turner’s electrically-timed mark of 22.30 set in the 200m Hurdles last year. Assisted by a wind exactly on the limit, he clocked 22.10. Rapidly closing was Bershawn Jackson, who was also inside the old figures. Earlier Turner won the 110m Hurdles from Terrence Trammell in 13.42, so he repeated his hurdles double from 2010.
