The sanctions issued by the USATF were as follows:
(i) A one-year period of ineligibility commencing on 23 June 2013, in accordance with IAAF Rule 40.2.
(ii) Disqualification of all Tyson Gay’s results since and including 15 July 2012, in accordance with IAAF Rule 40.8.
As this disqualification period covers the 2012 London Olympic Games, the IAAF has informed the IOC that, according to its rules, the team must automatically be disqualified.
The IOC has requested that the silver medals and diplomas be returned; and the results of the 2012 London Olympic Games will be modified by the IAAF.
