BEIJING -- U.S. sprinter Tyson Gay says he's "injury free" after completing a workout at Beijing Normal University.

The defending world champion in the 100 and 200 meters showed no obvious signs of discomfort Sunday while running at a track near the U.S. training center. Gay completed sprints of 60, 80 and 100 meters during a workout that was open to reporters.

Gay hurt his left hamstring while running in preliminary heats in the 200 during last month's U.S. trials. He already had qualified for the 100.

After the workout, Gay said he felt no pain and was "pretty confident."
