From the USA Today article: I'm told it is only a Grade 1 strain so hopefully I will be OK soon," he said.

The sprinter said he felt tightness in the hamstring during training last weekend and decided with coach Glen Mills not to take any risks this early in the season.

Sure hopes this puts to rest the offbase conflation (w/ Yohan Blake) of a claimed "Strain" with an actual Pulled Muscle, or even the generic "tear". Not that the (specious?) introduction of objective terminology (Grade 1) into a still somewhat subjective matter solves anything.

But "tightness", esp. in Training, is a long "stretch" to "serious injury", as one Poster wanted to define as anything affecting Meet appearance(s).

Tyson is added because no blake or bolt is there. So there is no ducking to do. Same old, same old. Not big clashes until worlds. Watch and see. Bolt, Blake and Tyson will not clash until worlds. Don't know why the build up, we all know how the story is going to end every time.

Jamboy we shall see. Every year there is a breakout star, so we will see. Someone said a 9.98 for Bailey Cole? U've got to be kidding me. His stride pattern and frequency has gotten way better this year. I am looking for a big improvement.

Tyson rarely races over 100m this early in the season. He's usually coming off his strenghwork of his early 400s and transitioning through his speedwork to 200s and 100s. As a matter of fact, I believe this is the earliest he'll have raced over 100m since 2008 when he did 10.02 (-0.2) in CA on 18 May. He usually runs 200m at this meet. 20.00 (1.2) in 08 19.97 (-0.5) in 07 20.12 (1.6) in 06, with a 45.05 400 from 2010.

That being said, 9.90 sounds about right.

Didn't he basically give up on the 200m because of his injuries? I think he only did one 200 last year and none in 2011.

He stated in an interview earlier this year that he's seeking PRs in the 1,2 & 4 this year.

Bolt was never scheduled for the 100m(only the 200m). Blake pulled out(100M about two weeks ago. Only after these two markee athletes pulled out, the organizers decided they needed another headliner for the meet and thus approached Tyson.

Tyson has run in Jamaica several times over the years carefully avoiding markee matchups with Bolt, Blake and Asafa :D

That's because he was pre-emptively avoiding Gay.

It just looks that way to those of us not in the know. Clearly they knew what was happening.

'A release from Bolt's agent Ricky Simms yesterday said the two-time Olympic double sprint champion was withdrawn from the meet out of an abundance of caution "due to a slight hamstring strain". Simms said, "The 26-year-old felt tightness in training over the weekend and in consultation with his coach Glen Mills decided not to risk anything at this early stage of the season". Bolt, who won the 100m at last year's renewal in a then world-leading 9.82 seconds, was quoted to have said: "I am disappointed to miss the Kingston meet as I love running in front of my home crowd in Jamaica. I'm told it is only a Grade One strain so hopefully I will be OK soon."'

What is the current status of Merlene Ottey in Jamaica....meaning her legacy, and how she is viewed by Jamaicans now?

Are there buildings, high schools (or tracks), or streets named after her?
Is she looked up to by women and girls in Jamaica the same way that Usain Bolt is??

Again, just curious,
Ottey is one of my all time favorite athletes.......and still competing at age 53!!
(Well, she'll BE 53 on May 10th!!)

I hope they regard her in the same way they regard all other drug cheats.


Don't get things twisted. Ottey was cleared.


She wasn't cleared, she got off on a technicality of procedure. It doesn't help a coach was busted last year with emails being sent to Ottey's coach on how to beat drug tests. She's Marion Jones like in always having something going on there.

I'm much the same, I'm British so if I took the self-assessment of "I did my best" of our middle distance runners at Championships as they finish way behind the leaders and nowhere close to their PBs I'd genuinely believe they were useless not persistent chokers.

Both Veronica and Allyson arrrived in Kingston this afternoon in preparation of their clash over 100m at the meet on Saturday.

This is the first time Felix is back in Jamaica running since she came fifth in the 200m at the 2002 World Junior Championships in Kingston.

This will be Felix's individual race season opener for 2013.

Didnt' you see Sherone on the first leg of the 4 x 100m at Penn Relays? She looks to be great shape.(ala 2006). I expect fireworks from her come trials in June.

"Six athletes led by Jamaica's Commonwealth and Pan-American Games 100m champion Lerone Clarke and 2008 Olympic Games 100m silver medallist Richard Thompson have withdrawn from the Jamaica International Invitational set for tomorrow evening at the National Stadium. An e-mail from Athletes Liaison Donald Quarrie yesterday advised that six athletes, including Jamaican male sprinter hurdler Richard Philips, American shot putter Cory Martin, American female sprint hurdler Gennie Crawford and quarter-miler Shereefa Lloyd had all withdrawn from the meet for various reasons."

Patton and Gay will be big duel.
Patton is in very great shape 9.75 +4.3 and 10.09 -2.0 means around 9.90 or little bit less with good legal wind.
Gay almost never run bad, so he will be very fast sure too.
And i must in Kemar for to be very near of them.

Ryan Bailey and Nesta Carter perhaps gets sub10.
It will be very good races if nobody more is out finally :lol:

We didn't get an actual split for her run, she just looked great compared to everyone else but everyone else could be running 11.2/3. I am more concerned with the actual time she will run this meet and not per se if she wins.
