Tyson Gay Defeats Usain Bolt in Stokholm

and Bolt wins again....what the? Who is that in front?

American sprinter Tyson Gay has defeated world and Olympic champion Usain Bolt in the 100m race at the Diamond League athletics meeting in Stokholm.

It is not often that Usain Bolt finishes a race and sees someone in front of him. Even if it was only 3/100th of a second in front it was still 2nd place.

It has been a while since the glory days of Gay’s 2007 world championship triumph and this must have been particularly satisfying to show that Bolt can be beaten.

Asafa Powell who pulled out of this meeting with injury was the last man to beat Bolt two years ago, ironically in Sweden.
