Tyson Gay's surgically repaired hip felt better than he could have envisioned after running his first 100-meter race in nearly a year.
Sure, the hip ached when he woke up the next morning, but only a slight twinge.
Gay entered the ''B'' 100-meter race Saturday at the Adidas Grand Prix, finishing in a time of 10.00 seconds as he ran into a headwind.
With that test out of the way, Gay turns his attention toward the Olympic trials in less than two weeks.
He has no races scheduled in between, just training in Dallas with coach Jon Drummond as they try to break some bad habits that crept in during Gay's long layoff.
To make the U.S. squad, Gay has to finish in the top three at trials.
