Here is what Tyson Gay said, after running the 20.00 for the 200 meters:
” I have not trained for a couple of weeks. I have had a bit of bad luck but it is alright. My groin is a bit tight on me, just trying to run through the pain and be tough about it. I am just taking it one day at a time. Any time there is any sort of pain, you get frustrated. I am going to have a massage and I should be ok.
I did not do the warmup like I wanted to do because of the situation. The way I slowed down it would have been 19.80 seconds at least. ”
Is Bolt the favorite in the 100 meters?
“Of course I do not agree with that. He has the 100 meters pretty technically sound and I am still working on it, but he knows that I am close to being the only one who can beat him. It don’t make sense for him to say that! ”
Are you sure to double in Berlin?
” I am just taking it one day at a time.”
