End of the worlds for Gay


THIS YEAR’S world championship 100m and 200m gold medals were virtually handed to Jamaican Usain Bolt after closest rival Tyson Gay was ruled out for the rest of the year.

American Gay had surgery on his injured hip which means that he will miss the World Championships in Daegu, South Korea in August.

US world 100 metres silver medallist Gay has undergone an arthroscopic procedure on his injured right hip and will not run again in 2011, his manager said on Thursday.

Gay, the world's second fastest man behind Bolt, had the surgery on Tuesday in Vail, Colorado, Mark Wetmore said in a statement.

"The doctor was pleased with the outcome and believes Tyson will resume his normal base training in the fall as he prepares for 2012," said Wetmore.

Gay had been scheduled to run in Diamond League events in Birmingham on Sunday and also at Crystal Palace on August 5-6.
