      From the IAAF site

      >>

      UPDATE 19:45hrs (GMT +2hrs) - Tyson Gay has informed the meeting organisers in the last few minutes that he will NOT run tomorrow, as he is not yet fully recovered from his hamstring injury, and does not want to risk further injury in the cold conditions forecast for Friday.

          He just got cold feet knowing that he is nowhere in the shape to beat Bolt or Powell. Not that I don't feel with him, but he has known that ever since the Olympics. The conditions can't be a factor since he has also run under similar circumstances in Gateshead last weekend. Not sure why he was entered to begin with, he couldn't expect a miraculous healing.

            He'll have to wait for the next WC's, where we know he can beat Asafa for sure.

                  Yes, but the one that many appear to have mastered is gobbledygook.

                    I imagined more along the lines of skipping the Olympic 4x100m prelim and final if his hamstring wasn:t at 100%. His blog has no entry since his 100m semi-final, but he did state then: "If I had just one more week, I wonder what would have happened."

                    He:s had a few more weeks, but the weather apparently has knocked him out of tomorrow:s matchup of the three-fastest men in history.

                    Yep.

                      I can't fault him. Powell has been running extremely fast without pressure of OG and Bolt has been effortlessly running fast times. I skip to if I wasn't 100% in game shape too.

                            hey, maybe Gay didn't want to come to Brussels because he was afraid of their sprouts.

                              There's a joke in there about needing all the wind assistance he can get to beat Bolt, but I'll pass on that ... :twisted:
