Usain Bolt, the Olympics record holder has been defeated for the first time by US athlete Tyson Gay.
The 100 m race which was held in Stockholm is surely a historical day for Tyson Gay. Defeating Usain Bolt will give any athlete a boost of confidence.
But,reports around the race suggest that Bolt was not comfortable at the race and was distracted by the faulty starts of other players.
Surprisingly it was indeed acknowledge by both Tyson Gay and Usain Bolt.
“It’s just one of those days for me today,” Bolt told the BBC. “I need to work on my shape. I got a good start but there was no power. I was ready, I was focused.”
In reference to the faulty starts, he said: “It kind of gets annoying, but I can’t blame that, he (Gay) was ready, he was in better shape than me.”
Gay was equally modest in his victory adding, “Deep down I knew he wasn’t 100%. I know what his limitations are, it’s his off-year, and I know he has a lot more left in the tank,” he said, adding that his aim now was to beat Bolt when both men were in top form. “I’m still waiting for the day when we are both 100% and Asafa is also on the line,” he said.
