Redemption is on Tyson Gay’s mind.

In the 2012 London Summer Olympics, Team USA’s star sprinter will be in position to rid himself of the ghosts still haunting him from his nightmare 2008 track season.

At the U.S. Trials that year, Gay set a national record in the 100-meter running a 9.77—only 0.05 seconds behind the world record at the time held by Usain Bolt.

That time would’ve been fast enough to win silver in Beijing, but Gay injured his hamstring in the Trials’ 200-meter dash. He never fully recovered and because of that, he ran the 100 in 10.05 seconds at the Olympic semis and failed to qualify for the final.

London will provide Gay with one last shot to win Olympic gold. He’ll participate in the 100-meter and      4x100-meter relay. His ability to make up for his Beijing debacle is without a doubt one of the most intriguing stories to watch at the Games.

Stay tuned for updates on Gay’s results.
