Tyson Gay, the former world champion sprinter in track and field, has been suspended for one-year. He tested positive for a banned substance that he unknowingly taken. He said that he put his trust in a lot of people and they let him down. He is not using any excuses and is facing his punishment.
Gay has returned his silver medal he won in the 2012 Olympics as a team member of the 4×100 relay team. He initially was facing a two-year ban, but that was reduced to one year because of cooperation and good behavior. The ban stems from last year and Gay will officially be able to race again this June. How he is perceived by the general public and his American teammates will be something to watch.
