    Not trying to sound prejudice or something, but is this really appropriate? -

    He's a good athlete and I'm glad he's competing. :fatcontroller:

    (Also, I couldn't really find anything funny to say)

    Personally, given his pre race training, i think he'll clench it and come up the rear.

    "I would still favour Bolt but at this point in time I think Gay is very close to him"

    Is it sad that I thought 'Oh Tyson Gay - should be a high quality race'?

    Its said that he did not have a good olympics, he could definetly put some pressure on Usain Bolt this time round.

    I don't understand how this is funny to anyone over the age of.. 8?

    And yeah, as MrGreedy said - he definitley has a chance to contest Bolt.. He ran 9.68 (albeit windy) and looks set to run much faster than his PB this season. Also don't discount Powell - he's run 9.72 (0.03 slower than Bolt!) which isn't a lot at all, in Usain terms! Bolt doesn't have the gold in his hands - but it's damn well close!..

    Apparently one news website had its settings to automatically change the word 'Gay' to 'Homosexual' and they had an article on Tyson. You can imagine what happened ...
