Diamond League: Gay beaten on drugs ban return by Gatlin
Tyson Gay lost on his return to action after a drugs ban as he came second to Justin Gatlin in the 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne.
Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic champion, won in 9.80 seconds from fellow American Gay, who ran 9.93 seconds on his comeback from a 12-month suspension.
A third American, Mike Rodgers, came third in 9.98secs, meaning the 100m podium in Switzerland was filled by men who have served drugs bans.
Gatlin, who won 100m bronze at London 2012, served a four-year doping ban from 2006, while Rodgers served a nine-month ban for failing a drugs test in 2011.
