Sprinter Gay wins first race since returning from drugs ban


Former world champion Tyson Gay secured his first victory since returning from a drugs ban as he won the 100m at the Montreuil meeting in Paris on Monday.
Making his second appearance following his one-year ban, Gay ran 10.04 seconds in pouring rain, with Richard Thompson second and Jaysuma Saidy Ndure third.
Gay, 31, came second to Justin Gatlin last week in Switzerland on his return to competition.
“My start was better in Lausanne, but here I felt better in the race. “I definitely want to get to 9.8-9.7 shape – it may take a couple more races to get down there.”
Gay’s ban, which was reduced from two years by the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) because of his cooperation, ended on 23 June.
