'My best years are ahead of me',says confident Tyson Gay

LAUSANNE, July 3, 2013 - He is already the fastest man in the world this year running the 100m on 9.75 and the 200m on 19.74 seconds at the American Trials. Tyson Gay has a chance to better his dash mark when he lines up for the Athletissima, Diamond League meeting in Lausanne, Thursday evening.

 

“I am hoping that everything goes well this year for me. Fortunately I have ran couple of good times this year and am right where I want, at number one in the world right now,” Gay, 31, confidently answered on his current form after an injury dogged past seasons.

 

“I feel my best years are ahead of me. I am not having the cramping issues after I ran the curves around my groin. Am feeling very strong.”

 

Gay and the world record holder and double Olympic champion Usain Bolt have not raced together this year.

 

The Jamaican is now in Paris and will run in the Diamond League meeting on Saturday. Bolt has expressed his intent to extend his sprint domination until the Rio games. 


Gays' response to that was: “I have to respect his goals. He is the best ever and is the world record holder. But I want to win every race I take part of and just lets see what I can do."

 

“At the end of the day I am one of those people hoping that every athlete is healthy. We all know Usain is going to be his best, and I am just hoping that I can run my best,” Gay added, with the most likely match up with the Jamaican sprint star being the World Championships in Moscow next month.

 

Gay hasn’t won the World Championship gold medal in 100m since Osaka 2007. But is his main focus this year to win the gold in Moscow next month or even break the world record?

 

“I want to come out with a medal and compete at my best. If I can win that’s even better. I am still trying to work on the first part of my race. My start can get more consistent I can be more a complete runner in the 100.”


He seems to be picking at the right time and has slowed down his programme with his coach Lance Brauman, fully recovered from the London 2012 heartbreak where he just missed out an his first individual Olympic medal in fourth.  

 

“For now am working with Lance as my coach. We are taking it slow,” he replied when asked about his coach. Previously he also worked with Jon Drummond.

 

Jamaican Asafa Powell who raced his second race last weekend at the Golden spike in Ostrava is also here in Lausanne. Powell sprinted across the line in 9.97 after a dismal seventh place finish at the Jamaican nationals in 10.06 seconds.
