o very difficult opponents that will be very similar and used to these kinds

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Mike Hoffman Jersey . -- Sprinter Tyson Gay accepted a one-year suspension Friday after testing positive for a banned substance nearly a year ago and returned the silver medal he won in the mens 400-meter relay at the 2012 London Olympics. The US Anti-Doping Agency announced that Gays one-year ban began June 23, the day his sample was collected at the U.S. championships. His sanction is subject to appeal by International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) and by the World Anti-Doping Agency, USADA said Friday. As part of the penalty, Gay, the American record-holder in the 100, also accepted loss of results dating to July 15, 2012, the date of when he first used a product that contained a banned substance. He was a member of the relay team at the London Games that finished second to a Jamaican team anchored by Usain Bolt. The Americans set a national record with a time of 37.04 seconds. Gay has given his medal back to the United States Olympic Committee. USADA said in a statement that upon receiving notification of his positive tests, Gay voluntarily withdrew from all competition prior to the 2013 world championships in Moscow and has not competed since. The 31-year-old Gay couldve been given a penalty twice as long, but received consideration after assisting USADA in the investigation into his positive test. USADA said he tested positive for the presence of an exogenous androgenic anabolic steroid. "We appreciate Tyson doing the right thing by immediately withdrawing from competition once he was notified, accepting responsibility for his decisions, and fully and truthfully co-operating with us in our ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding his case," USADA CEO Travis Tygart said in a statement. Gay was at the top of his game at the 2007 world championships in Osaka, Japan, capturing gold in the 100, 200 and 400 relay. That was just before the emergence of Bolt, whos dominated the sprint scene ever since. Meanwhile, Gay has dealt with one injury after another, including strained groins, hamstring tightness and hip surgery. He set the American 100 record in 2009 when he finished in 9.69 seconds. Bolt has the world record at 9.58. Before last season, Gays test results never raised any red flags. He even took part in USADAs "My Victory" program -- in which athletes volunteer for enhanced testing to prove theyre clean. He tested positive out of competition last May. A month later, Gay recorded a positive at the U.S. championships, where he won the 100 and 200 metres, and was notified. He surrendered his spot at worlds. Gay said at the time: "I dont have a sabotage story. I dont have any lies. I dont have anything to say to make this seem like it was a mistake or it was on USADAs hands, someone playing games." In a statement released by USA Track and Field, CEO Max Siegel said the organization is "gravely disappointed any time an athlete uses performance-enhancing drugs, and Tyson Gays case serves as a lesson about the consequences of making poor decisions. We appreciate that Tyson accepted responsibility and has assisted USADA by providing information to help battle the use of PEDs." There are no major international meets in track this summer, but U.S. championships will be held June 26-29 in Sacramento, California. And while Gay could become eligible for that meet, the disqualification of his results dating to 2012 has taken away his qualifying time for the meet. He could petition the track and field committee for consideration, but USATF has said it hasnt received such a petition yet. Gay has until June 16 to enter a petition in order to gain entry into the meet. Chris Driedger Jersey . The judge sternly instructed the prosecutor to restrain himself and he apologized -- then went right back to trying to pick holes in the testimony of the double-amputee runner. It was a harsh day of cross-examination for Pistorius, challenged relentlessly about his account of the moments just before he killed Reeva Steenkamp, as well as circumstances related to several firearms charges against him, including the firing of a gun in a crowded restaurant. Cody Ceci Jersey . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven.MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica - Canada came from behind twice, but allowed a goal in the 90th minute and eventually fell 3-2 to El Savador on Thursday at the CONCACAF under-20 championship. Romilio Hernandez was credited with the winner after the ball deflected in off his body following an original save made by Canadian goalkeeper Nolan Wirth off a free kick. Bryan Perez put El Savador up 1-0 late in the first half before Hanson Boakai came off the bench to respond for Canada (1-0-2) in the 47th minute. At halftime we made a tactical change and looked to occupy spaces higher up the field and move the ball better as wed planned from the start. Once we started to do that we created opportunities. It was a great goal from (Boakai), said coach Rob Gale. Jose Villavicencio regained the edge for El Savador (1-2-0) in the 77th minute, but the lead didnt last long as Kianz Froese tied the match 2-2 only two minutes later. Erik Karlsson Jersey. Canada opened its tournament with a win over Haiti, but followed that up with a loss to Mexico on Monday. Its next game is Jan. 19 against Cuba followed by a final its final Group B match against Honduras. We want to respond and rebuild and build momentum. We need to regroup a little bit now to do that and go forward, said Gale. Weve got two very difficult opponents that will be very similar and used to these kinds of conditions so we will respond in the right way and make sure we get it right in the next game. Four teams from the 12-country CONCACAF championship will advance from the tournament to represent North and Central America and the Caribbean at the FIFA U20 World Cup, which kicks off May 30 in new Zealand China Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic JerseysJerseys From China Stitched NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap NFL T-shirtsWholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale NFL T-shirts Jerseys From China ' ' '
