Per an announcement by the announcers just before the third semi-final, Tyson Gay has withdrawn from the 100 meter semi finals. USA Track & Field is quoted as attributing the  withdrawal to pain in both hip and adductor.  USATF told the mixed zone that Tyson Gay has a right hip "problem" he has been living with recently. Apparently, he could not warm up today.

This was first announced by Ato Bolton, NBC announcer and constant twitterer.
