Tyson Gay not on list for relay team

INDIANAPOLIS -- The U.S. track team left Tyson Gay out of the group of eligible runners for the relays at world championships.
Last month, Gay pulled out of national championships after the first round of the 100 with a hip injury. He did not run in the 200 either, meaning his only chance at competing at worlds was as part of a relay team.
But, as expected, he was not on the list that came out Tuesday.
The top four finishers in the 100 and 400 meter races at nationals are all guaranteed spots in the relay pool.
USA Track and Field also gave out 21 wild-card spots for eligibility for the four relay teams.
