Why Justin Gatlin is the man to beat


By James K. Attaglo Wilson

American sprinter Justin Gatlin on Friday maintained why he is the man to beat when he cruised 9.78 seconds in the men?s 100 meters at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco, France.
ju?My plan is to be ready for anybody in Beijing and be fast enough to continue my dominance this year,? Gatlin who had his 27th successive win said.
?I rate this race as good as the other one this year,? the 33-year-old Gatlin who is unbeaten since August 2013 noted.
2007 double world champion Tyson Gay finished second in 9.97 seconds whilst Frenchman Jimmy Vicaut came third in 10.03 seconds to give the home crowd at the Stade Louis II to cheer about.
Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic 100m gold medalist and 2005 double sprint champion?s form continue to send a strong signal to the reigning world champion Usain Bolt, who is off fitness that he?s surely the man to beat in the upcoming world championship in Beijing, China.
