Top sprinters have positive drug tests
Top sprinters Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson acknowledged Sunday that they had tested positive for banned substances.
Gay is the American champion in the 100 meters. Jamaica's Powell is the former world- record holder in the 100, while countrywoman Sherone Simpson has a gold and two silver Olympic medals on her resume.
The 30-year-old Gay, who won the world championship in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay in 2007, took part in the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's "My Victory" program — in which athletes volunteer for enhanced testing to prove they're clean — and his results never raised red flags. Until, that is, an out-of-competition test May 16 that yielded positive results for a banned substance, the identity of which neither he nor USADA CEO Travis Tygart would reveal.
