Tyson Gay

Gay acknowledged he did something wrong, but he also passed the blame to someone else (he didn’t identify who was the person he claims gave him the banned substance).

Doesn’t matter now because adidas has decided to stop paying him after his positive test.

“We are shocked by these recent allegations, and even if we presume his innocence until proven otherwise, our contract with Tyson is currently suspended,” Adidas said in a statement.

“Adidas has a clear policy on doping and drug use,” the company said. “Each of the agreements with our athletes include a clear clause which states that the agreement shall be terminated by Adidas if the athlete is found guilty of the possession or use of drugs or any other prohibited substance by the relevant governing sports body having jurisdiction over the athlete.”
