While most of our top sprinters were running relays at Penn, Tyson Gay got his 2009 campaign going at the low key Sun Devil Invitational in Tempe Arizona. Last month the Adidas Running camp revealed that Tyson Gay's fall and winter training were delayed due to a knee injury. Judging from yesterday's result Tyson has gotten back on track as he won the 400 meters in 46.34 to set a new personal best in the event. Tyson's previous best was a 47.08 run indoors in Fayetteville AR in 2007 - the same season that Gay won both the 100 and 200 at the World Championships in Osaka. It would appear that Tyson's training is progressing and that he will be a major factor in the sprints this year.
