US sprinter Dix makes European debut in Lucerne

American sprinter Walter Dix is scheduled to run his first European race of the season at the July 21 Spitzen meeting as he prepares for the world championships.
Meet director Terry McHugh says Dix, a double bronze medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, will compete in the 200 meters.
Dix is the main American sprint medal hope at the worlds starting Aug. 27 in Daegu, South Korea.
He clocked his season-best of 19.95 seconds to win the 200 national title last month at Eugene, Oregon.
Dix won the 100 in 9.94, after Tyson Gay withdrew with a hip injury that needed season-ending surgery.
Dix ran a personal best 9.88 at Lucerne last year, finishing second to Jamaica's Nesta Carter.
