Sprinter Tyson Gay Linked to Atlanta Anti-Aging Doctor


Last week U.S. sprinter Tyson Gay tested positive for a banned substance,  just a month before the U.S. track and field team is set to compete in the world championships in Moscow.

After the results of the test went public, the world’s second fastest man ever in 100 meters, conceded that his sample drug test was  positive and made no excuses for the results.

In a phone interview, Gay, whose voice appeared to be distorted by  weeping, talked about the test, saying: “I don’t have any lies. I don’t have anything to say to make this seem like it was a mistake.”

New information surfaced today about where the sprinter may have possibly received the banned substance. Sports Illustrated is reporting:

“Gay has been treated by Atlanta chiropractor and anti-aging specialist Clayton Gibson. In the sports world, the term ‘anti-aging’ has often come to signify therapy that uses hormones — usually testosterone and HGH — and testosterone precursors, like DHEA. DHEA can be obtained over the counter and is permitted in certain sports, including baseball, but not those contested in the Olympics.”

Gibson told SI in a phone interview that he staring working with the athlete prior to the Olympic trials last year, and that he was apparently clean before he started the treatment with Gay. “We had [Gay’s] blood tested and everything before the trials just as an evaluation and taking a history to learn about the patient,” said Gibson.

When Gibson was asked what exactly did Gay take, the specialist responded, “Until I look at his files, I wouldn’t be able to know exactly what he was given. And I have to have a release to give out his information.”
