LAUSANNE, Switzerland: Tyson Gay says he is finally injury-free and has “no excuses” for not beating Usain Bolt.
Gay says it was “maddening for so long” dealing with hip, groin and hamstring pain, while Bolt piled up world records and gold medals.
The American won sprint double gold at the 2007 world championships before Bolt’s domination started.
Gay proved his form and fitness by setting world season-leading times in the 100 and 200 meters at the US championships last month.
He says ahead of running the 100 at Thursday’s Athletissima Diamond League meeting: “It’s finally over and done with.
“I have no excuses, I have no pain. I am over the mental part of being injured,” says Gay, who will be 31 on the eve of the worlds in Moscow next month.
