Aviva British Grand Prix, Monday, August 31, 2009, complete results by IAAF.org, Notes by Larry Eder

| 0 Comments

A rainy day in Gateshead, and still, some strong performances. Phillips Idowu (triple jump), Christine Ohuruogu (400 meters), Lisa Dobriskey (1,500 meters) brought home wins for the home crowd. Crowd pleasers La Shawn Merritt, Tyson Gay, Allyson Felix, Carmelita Jeter, Christin Wurth Thomas won their specialties. A close race in the men's 200 meters, with Shawn Crawford over Wallace Spearmon, 20.80-20.81. Nice 2.33m for Andra Mason over Yaroslav "I am only clean athlete in sport" Rybakov (check Russia Sports site, last week).

Big news is that Tyson Gay, after winning a 10.15 100 meters into a -2 mps facewind, announced to media the will race twice more in 2009 (Brussells and somewhere to be named?). After the season ends, Tyson will have groin surgery.
