Tyson Gay Breaks World Record Challenges for World's Fastest Man

American sprinter Tyson Gay broke a 44 year old record on Sunday evening, and in the process he threw his name into the race as world's fastest man. Gay ran a 19.41 second 200 meter dash good enough for a world record, the catch it was on a straight track, and international rules only reconized 200 meter times recorded on a curved track.

Despite that minor setback, Tyson Gay recorded a 9.88 second 100 meter split which puts him in the race for world's fastest man, a title currently held by Usion Bolt. While Gay gave credit for Bolt and his athletic ability, he did admit that he was gunning for the Jamacian sprinter and hopes to catch him one day.
