Tyson Gay Update: Five Weeks of Training, story from Orlando Sentinel, note by Larry Eder

The care and development of the world's second fastest 100 meter runner (and fifth fastest at 200 meters), 9.69 and 19.58, Tyson Gay,  is in the hands on one Lance Brauman. Lance is a fine coach, who has had much success with sprinters, and jumpers. RBR has had the privilege to observe workouts last year, and to see Tyson develop over the past half decade.

Tyson Gay is a tough competitor. And all of the eyes of the US will be upon him at the US Olympic Trials, coming up June 22-July 1, in Eugene, Oregon. It is the job of Lance Brauman to get Tyson prepared, keep him healthy and help him reach his peak for London 2012.

After five weeks of training, Tyson is gently getting on the track. Makes sense. Lots of muscle memory there, but, at the age of 30, Tyson Gay has to focus his talents on key races, and that is what he seems to be doing. We wish him luck this year.

A very nicely done article and update on Tyson Gay and Lance, can be found today in the Orlando Sentinel, with this link
