Watching the the 100 meter dash at the 2008 Reebok Grand Prix, i was happy and disappointed at the same time. I was happy to see Usain Bolt break the world record. It was cool to see the record broken live. That was cool. At the same time, I was disappointed to see the USA fall in the 100 meter dash once again. Our dominance in 100 meter dash is slowly slipping away to the Jamaicans. As you can see, we run the 200 meter and the 400m for right now, and with Bernard Lagat running for the USA, America can show promise in the 1500, 3000, or the 5000. As for the 100 meter dash, i want to the US on top in Beijing. After seeing that race, I still believe Tyson Gay can and will be victorious at the Olympics. The USA has to claim the 100 meter dash again. The USA is known for its dominat sprinters like Gay, Spearman, Wariner, Merritt just to name a few. Its a month before the trials, and Tyson is on his way to peak performance. I want to watch Gay claim the 100 and 200 meter double in Beijing.
