    yeah, incredible.

    Regardless of the wind, Gay’s time is the fastest 100-meter time ever recorded. (Obadele Thompson of Barbados had run 9.69 with a tailwind of more than 5 meters per second in 1996.) Runner-up Walter Dix earned his spot on the U.S. team with a 9.80 effort, followed by Darvis Patton, who ran 9.94.

    ^^that's from runnersworld right here.

    That's a huge turn around for Dix after his performance at NCAAs.
