Gatlin runs first 200m of road to London
General - News
With a 10.34 heat and a 10.24 final Justin Gatlin took his first strides in competition since 2006 and at 28 years old he has time on his side over the 100m; just. He was trailed home by two other good Americans, J-Mee Samuels 10.31 and Rubin Williams 10.54.

Gatlin has reportedly found invitations to top European meets hard to come by, so the Kuldlilga meeting in Rakvere, Estonia was chosen; his next stop is Tallinn on August 8.

".......I am ready to go and run and compete....." said Gatlin after spending four years out of competition due to a ban.

Gatlin should be running sub 10 seconds very soon and given his race experience is a serious contender for the top of the 100m pack. If he can remain injury free and find his true form this comeback story could end with a medal in 2012 for the 2004 Olympic 100m champion.
