It took Tyson Gay only 9.75 seconds to prove that, yes, he's healthy, and leave the rest of the track world wondering -- and maybe worrying -- about what he might do next.
With a helping wind at his back, America's best-known sprinter ran his 100 preliminary heat in the seventh-fastest time under any conditions Thursday, then exited stage right, not to be seen again at the U.S. championships.
Already qualified for this summer's world championships in Berlin, Gay used this single race at nationals as a tune up. Because of the wind, the 9.75 won't go down as the new American record, even though this was .02 seconds faster than the mark he set last year on the same track.
