LONDON (AP) -- Tyson Gay led home an American one-two finish in
the 100 meters at the London Grand Prix on Friday as he prepares
for the Olympics in the British capital.

The former world champion won in 10.03 seconds in a headwind of
1.2 meters per second, ahead of compatriot Ryan Bailey and Nesta
Carter of Jamaica.

Gay says he's in "pretty good shape, I just need to work on
some things on my groin area with my physio and I should be good to
go."

Gay added that the Crystal Palace track was "the best place to
prepare" for the July 27-Aug. 12 Olympics.

Asafa Powell, one of Gay's chief rivals, withdrew with a groin
strain to ensure he is fit for the games.
