Gay replaces Gatlin for the Jamaica Invitational

Gatlin was earlier announced to compete in the 100m at the May 9 meet set for the National Stadium.

However, the organisers of the event were informed that the 9.77 seconds man will no longer be available, since he will be focusing on the April 23-25 Penn Relays and the May 2-3 IAAF World Relays in The Bahamas instead.

Gay’s last appearance at the Jamaica International Invitational was in 2013 when he won the 100m in 9.86 seconds.

He is expected to face the likes of Americans Ryan Bailey and Walter Dix, with Jamaicans Nesta Carter and Nickel Ashmeade also confirmed for the meet.
