Newsflash: Tyson beats Safa


Tyson Gay beat Asafa Powell at the World Champs 100m. It looks like Safa choked again as he had been running more impressively in the rounds leading up to the final and also in the weeks preceding the WC. He had Gay through about 70m and then Gay passed him quite easily. It even looked like Safa might have backed off at the end costing him a silver medal. Oh well. At least the guy now has a major championship medal. I’m sure bronze wasn’t the color he was looking for though.
