Tyson Gay failed more than one drug test in 2013; tested positive at US nationals

Tyson Gay has already surrendered his spot at next month's world championships. If a positive test from nationals is confirmed by his "B'' sample, those results would be vacated, though it's likely they would be anyway because of his May 16 positive.

Sprinter Tyson Gay failed more than one drug test this year, recording one of his positives at the U.S. championships in June, where he won the 100 and 200 meters, The Associated Press learned on Friday.

Earlier this month, Gay revealed he had tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took on May 16.

Three people familiar with the case told the AP that Gay had multiple positives this year. One of those people said one positive came at nationals and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has notified him of that result.
