This weekend I was watching the Olympic trials in Eugene. The 100M run was a spectacular race, watch the video below.

Tyson Gay ran the fastest 100 meters under any conditions in history, a wind-aided effort of 9.68 seconds to win the sprint final on Sunday at the US Olympic track and field trials. Tyson did not get the world record due to a 4.1m/sec tailwind. He did surpass a 9.69 run by Obadele Thompson of Barbados in 1996 that had a 5m/sec breeze boost.

Wow, that is fast, dang wind 😉
