Tyson Gay of the U.S. looks at the scoreboard after his men's 100m semi-final of the athletics competition at the National Stadium during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games in this August 16, 2008 file photo. Over 116 years the Olympic 100 metres final has produced drama, pain, controversy, disillusionment, incredulity and unbridled joy - all crammed into a race lasting little longer than it takes to say "Baron Pierre de Coubertin."

Former world 100m champion Tyson Gay will take part in this week’s USA Bobsled National Push Championships.

Gay, 34, tested positive for steroids at the US Athletics Championships in 2013 and served a one-year ban, with his results back to July 2012 annulled.

He and his American team-mates were stripped of the 4x100m relay silver medal they won at London 2012.

Ryan Bailey, who was in the relay squad and therefore lost his medal, is also set to compete in the championships.

Referring to having his medal taken away, Bailey said last month that he was “still not over it”.
