NEW YORK (AP)

The agent for Tyson Gay says the sprinter will run a ''low key'' 100-meter race at the Adidas Grand Prix in New York on Saturday in his first competition since hip surgery.

His representative Mark Wetmore confirmed late Monday night Gay will run in a ''B'' heat and not the marquee event that features reigning world champion Yohan Blake of Jamaica.

Reuters first reported Gay's decision.

Gay is the American record holder in the 100, but had surgery last July to repair his ailing hip. He has been extremely cautious with his rehabilitation since the procedure, but hopes to be ready for the Olympic trials that begin in less than three weeks.

The former world champion turns 30 in August.
