Clay won two of four events yesterday at the 11th World Indoor Track Championships in Moscow to take a 38-point lead over the Czech Republic's Roman Sebrle into today's final three events.

Clay won the 60-meter dash in 6.67 seconds and took the high jump with 2.10 meters (6-10fi). He placed second in the long jump with 7.74 meters (25-4 1/2) and sixth in the shot put with 13.89 meters (45-6 1/2) to amass 3,616 points.

The final three events are the 60-meter hurdles, pole vault and 1,000-meter run.
