Gay, Bolt Not Running New York This Weekend

“It looks very unlikely he will compete,” Gay’s agent, Mark Wetmore, told Reuters. “There’s a readiness (needed) to run the 100 metres, and he does not have that.”

Bolt, the reigning Olympic gold medalist and world record holder in both the 100 and 200 meters, pulled out of the New York meeting last week due to injury. Gay, who ran a world record 19.41 seconds for the rarely-contested straight 200 meter dash at an exhibition last month in England, is expected to compete at the next Diamond League meeting July 3 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.
