EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Tyson Gay has tumbled to the ground at the
start of his 200-meter quarterfinal heat at the U.S. Olympic trials
and had to be carted off the track.
Running in the seventh lane, Gay was speeding to the lead in the
first turn Saturday, but something went wrong. He went airborne,
fell, then laid on the ground in pain.
He already had qualified for the Olympics in the 100 meters, but
his availability for the games will now be determined by the
severity of his injury.
