    When did Tyson Gay recover from his groin injury that didn't allow him to compete in the 200 ?

      He could have competed in the 200, but after seeing Bolt in the 100, he decided to 'save' himself for the 4x1 relay (!). He will be getting surgery on the groin after the season.

        Berlin was almost a month ago, he has also withdrawn from other potential races in the 200 because of that injury. The question remains, why now ?

          How high could you possibly rank him off of just two races this year?

          The only 200m he's withdrawn from all year was in Berlin, following four rounds which ended with a big personal best. He elected to run just the 100m at WAF and it looks as if it was the right decision. Besides, I doubt that he had enough points to get into the 200m, with the bye going to Bolt, the IAAF would have to break their rule and let two non-qualified entrants into the 200m. Not that it would have been bad to do so.

            I thought he was originally going to compete in the 200 in Brussels, then moved down to the 100. I also believe I read somewhere he wasn't going to run any more 200s this season because his groin doesn't allow him to as it's too big of a risk.

            Of course where I'm coming from is that Bolt and Gay were still ducking each other, even after Berlin. Hopefully there doesn't have to be speculation next season with the inauguration of the Diamond League and intended increase of duels between these two.

              "Gay said Tuesday he will not switch from the 100 at the last Golden League meet of the season."

                Monika Pyrek cleared only 4.40 and went out at her second height of 4.60. Kate Dennison cleared that, setting another British record, and the only other vaulters left in the competition are Kiryashova and Rogowska.

                Sylwester Bednarek just had a very nice first-time clearance at 2.30. Rybakov also cleared, and the two are now tied for the lead, with no one else left in the competition.

                Wurth-Thomas beat Dobriskey in a fairly slow 1500 race (outside 4:07).

                  Alekna had a big throw of 68.53 in round 3 and is leading by almost 2 meters from Harting.

                  Rogowska had two failures at 4.70, but then cleared it very convincingly in the last attempt to win the competition - had she not done it, Kiryashova would have been the winner.

                    Bednarek and Rybakov both passed 2.32 and took 3 attempts at 2.34. Neither cleared, but both had close attempts (Rybakov was slightly closer).

                    Artur Noga scored a nice win over a good field in the 110H with 13.35 SB (wind speed was +1.7).

                    Brigitte Foster was a no-show in the women's hurdles. Nickeisha Wilson was the clear winner there in 12.79.

                    Alekna's 68.53 easily held up for the win, and he also had a throw of 67.79. Harting finished second with 66.58, just ahead of Zoltan Kovago's 66.42, with Małachowski back in forth at 65.14.

                      Asafa 9.82 (+1.4)! That's on a cool evening, and with no serious opposition (Nesta Carter in second finished 0.28 behind).

                      Gay started VERY slowly in the 200, but won by a big margin in 20.21.

                      Cantwell left it very late, down in third place for most of the competition, but he overtook Majewski with 21.49 in the last attempt.
