Switzerland Diamond League: Disappointed Asafa takes down Gay, loses to Gatlin
American Justin Gatlin won the highly anticipated men's 100m race at today's IAAF Diamond League stop in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Gatlin powered his way to a 9.75 win over Jamaican Asafa Powell 9.92; and his countryman Tyson Gay who also clocked 9.92.
In a post race interview, Powell said he was disappointed.
"I thought I was going to get the win today but the real disappointment is that I didn't execute as well as I wanted to," he said.
However, Gatlin did not seem troubled by the other two sub-10 finishers in the race.
"I'm feeling really good right now. I knew that Asafa is a great starter, Gay is a great closer so I needed to get it right," he told The Gleaner.
