-Beijing--At the Opening Ceremonies on Friday, Tyson Gay walked with the U.S Olympic team at the Bird’s Nest. Which has to mean that man who has covered the 100-meters faster than any man in history is back.

It is a monumental feat since he went down on June 5 in the quarterfinal of the 200-meter dash at the U.S. Olympic Trials. The reigning 100 and 200-meter World Champion has not competed since experiencing a mild hamstring cramp in Eugene.

"Our first question to the doctor was 'Can [Gay] run in the Olympics?' '' said Jon Drummond, who is Gay’s co-coach.

Is is safe to surmise that Gay has fully recovered and ready to go?

The first round of the Olympic 100 meters is Friday, Aug. 15, with the final the next day.
