Bolt beaten by Tyson Gay in Stockholm – Video
STOCKHOLM — World record holder and Olympic champion Usain Bolt crashed to his first defeat in two years on Friday when America’s Tyson Gay won their eagerly-awaited 100m clash at the Diamond League meeting.
Gay clocked 9.84sec to edge Bolt, who was second in 9.97sec, while Trinidad’s Richard Thompson took third in 10.10sec.
“It feels great to beat Usain but deep down inside I know he is not 100 percent,” said Gay, the second fastest man in the history of the event.
“I look forward to beating him when he is 100 percent.”
Gay insisted that Bolt is still the man to catch.
“Usain knows what his limitations are. His goal this year was to go undefeated, not set world records. He has plenty left in the tank.”
