MANCHESTER, England -- American sprinter Tyson Gay broke a 44-year-old record for 200 meters run on a straight track as part of his drive to challenge Usain Bolt for sprint supremacy.
Gay ran 19.41 seconds into a slight headwind Sunday on a specially constructed track, shaving 0.09 off the mark Tommie Smith set in May 1966 at San Jose, Calif.
I can't wait to see those 2 race against each other
Just for the record, yes Bolt has run a full race all the way out, on multiple occasions. And when he runs at his best he is untouchable in the 200m. 19.19 is one of the most incredible times in any track event ever and when he is running at his best he has the ability to do it again or even shave a few more hundredths off.
