How sad! Both former world champion Tyson Gay and the ex-100 m world record holder Asafa Powell have tested positive for banned drugs. This will not do the sport any good.

Gay was told on Friday that his A sample from an out-of-competition test in May was positive and Powell tested positive for a banned stimulant at June’s Jamaican Championships.

Powell has insisted he had never ”knowingly” doped while Gay has said ”I basically put my trust in someone and was let down”.

Drug taking in sport is not an accident – it’s a choice
