The PowerAde City Games, held in Manchester, England on Sunday, featured the 200 meter flat with current world record holder, Tommie Smith (19.5, 1966) as a witness. Tyson got out of the blocks slow, then hit the 100 meters in 9.88 and continued to fly, hitting the
200 meter mark in 19.41! His second 100 meters was run in 9.54 and the 100 meters between 50 and 150 meters, was, well, 8.72! Nice to see Tyson Gay running with both legs!
