June 29, 2008 |  6:25 pm

Tyson Gay wins the 100-meter final in a wind-aided 9.68. If anyone had any question about Tyson Gay's chances to repeat his perfomance at the 2007 World Championships in the 100 meters, no one does now.

Gay blew past the field today at the 2008 U.S. track and field trials with a wind-aided 9.68, the fastest 100 meters ever by a human, to win the men's final.

Walter Dix, the 2007 NCAA champion from Florida State, overtook Darvis Patton at the end to win second place in 9.80. Patton was clocked at 9.84 for third.
