Former world champion Tyson Gay gets one-year doping suspension
The U.S. 100 meter dash record-holder will be eligible to run again next month.
American sprinter Tyson Gay has been suspended for one year after the former world champion tested positive for a banned substance, the United States Ant-Doping Agency announced Friday.
Gay, 31, has returned the silver medal he won as a member of the U.S.'s 4x100 relay team at the 2012 London Olympics. According to Reuters, Gay faced a two-year suspension but was granted leniency due to his cooperation in the investigation. The sprinter removed himself from last year's world championships after the initial positive test.
The suspension is retroactive to last year, when Gay initially tested positive, so he'll be eligible to race again this June.
Gay is currently the U.S. record-holder in the 100-meter dash. Only Usain Bolt has a faster time in the event than Gay's 9.69 seconds mark.
A nine-time world champion, Gay will not face further sanctions or restrictions after his suspension is complete.
