Dix steals Gay's200m thunder

By unknown | Jul 05, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

EUGENE, Oregon - Walter Dix spoiled Tyson Gay's return, winning the 200m at the Prefontaine Classic on Saturday in the time of 19,72 seconds, edging Gay by 0,04 seconds.

Gay has not competed since May because of a hamstring injury.

The Prefontaine, which did not include a men's 100m, was a first step toward challenging Jamaican Usain Bolt's dominance in the sprints.

Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100m and 200m, did not compete at Saturday's meet, part of the elite IAAF Diamond League series.

Dix was coming off a victory in the 100m last week in the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, where he finished second to Walter Spearmon in the 200.

Earlier this year Dix ran the 200m in 19.86 seconds at a Diamond League meet in Rome.

"I'm Glad I got the competition against Tyson and came out victorious," Dix said.

Gay last ran in May in Manchester, England, when he put up a 19.41 in a straight-track 200m. - Sapa-AP
