One-year ban for Gay

Sunday, May 04, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - US sprint star Tyson Gay has received a one-year doping ban from the US Anti-Doping Association (USADA) and returned a 2012 London Olympics silver medal to the US Olympic Committee.

USADA announced on Friday that the 31-year-old American track star tested positive for a banned anabolic steroid in two random out-of-competition tests and one event doping test in urine samples taken by both USADA and the world governing body IAAF.

Gay accepted a one-year period of ineligibility that began on June 23 last year, the day his sample was collected at the US Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Because the random test positives were collected near the date of the meet, they were treated as one violation.

Gay accepted a one-year doping ban and the disqualification of all results dating to July 15, 2012 — the date he first used a product that contained a banned substance — and forfeited all prizes obtained from that date.
