Gay’s doping costs USA Olympic relay silverArchive
LOS ANGELES: The US men’s 4x100m relay team has been stripped of the 2012 Olympic silver medal because of Tyson Gay’s doping case, the US Olympic Committee confirmed.
USOC chief communications officer Patrick Sandusky said the International Olympic Committee had notified the USOC of the action, which was no surprise after the US Anti-Doping Agency’s findings against Gay.
“As expected, following USADA’s decision in the Tyson Gay case, the IOC today confirmed that the US team has been disqualified from the 4x100-meter race that was part of the athletics competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games,” Sandusky said in a statement.
