Justin Gatlin, the 2004 gold medalist in Athens, won the men's 100m at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Track and Field on Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., crossing the line in 9.80 seconds, a new personal best and the second-fastest time in the world.
Tyson Gay (9.86) was second and Ryan Bailey (9.93) claimed third place from lane one to complete Team USA's representation in the men's 100m at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Here's how it looked in moving picture form:
Gay got off to a slow start and wasn't able to completely close the gap on Gatlin, but with it being just his fourth race in the past year as he recovered from hip surgery last July, he has to be happy with the results.

The final of the men's 100m finals in London is scheduled for Aug. 5. The Jamaicans, Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell, will be considered the favorites.
