Tyson Gay would be the World Record holder in the 100 meters if Usain Bolt never entered the equation. The whole world along with Tyson himself thought he was the one. Until the 2008 Olympic Games where Usain Bolt came up from the shadows. After the upset at the Olympics Tyson made another jab at Bolt a year later at the 2009 World Championships. He was unable to beat Bolt but he ran an impressive time of 9.69 while Bolt set a new World Record at 9.58 seconds. Tyson holds the American record for the 100 meter and that is considered his strongest event. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By1JQFxfLMM , in this video you can see Gay in the Blue next to Usain Bolt as he takes second and runs a 9.69.
