Tyson Gay tested positive for more than one drugs test this year: Sources

London, July 28 (ANI): Jamaican sprinter Tyson Gay has tested positive for more than one drugs test this year, as one of his positives at the US championships in June, where he won the 100m and 200m was recently recorded.

According to the Guardian, earlier this month, Gay revealed he had tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took on 16 May.

The report said that three people familiar with the case had revealed that Gay had multiple positives this year, adding that the athlete was not trying to hide anything, but simply didn't know he was taking a banned drug.

The sprinter has already surrendered his spot at next month's world championships, the report added.

A first-time offense for doping usually brings a two-year ban, though athletes who cooperate with Usada sometimes get reduced penalties and Gay is cooperating with Usada, the report further said. (ANI)
