sprinter Tyson Gay banned one year for doping

4×100 metres relay team at the 2012 London Olympics but will be eligible to return to competition as early as next month after admitting his offence and co operating with investigators.

"We are thankful he decided to come in and be truthful in his cooperation with us," USADA chief executive Travis Tygart told Reuters.

"With the loss of results since 2012, including an Olympic medal, he has suffered serious consequences, but by cooperating he has tried to help the sport move forward for the good of clean athletes."

As part of the suspension he accepted, Gay, the joint second fastest man in history, was disqualified from all competitive results since July 15, 2012, the date he first used a product that contained a prohibited steroid.

The start of his ban was
cheap oakleys backdated to June
fake cheap oakleys 23, 2013, the day his doping sample was collected at the USA Outdoor Track Field Championships and when he voluntarily stopped competing after being notified of his
oakley sunglasses replica positive test.

His first race back is planned for July, Reuters has learned.

The American 100 metres record
oakleys sunglasses holder had tearfully admitted last July he had failed an out of competition doping test, saying "I basically put my trust in someone and I was let down."

"I don’t have a sabotage story. I don’t have lies," Gay, who had previously spoken out against doping, said in a 2013 interview, adding he had never knowingly taken a performance enhancing drug. "I made a mistake."

The 31 year old could have
cheap replica oakleys been suspended for two years for his first doping offence but received a reduction because of his substantial assistance, USADA said.

The circumstances of his case is still under investigation and could produce additional suspensions, track and field sources said.

The ban is also subject to appeal by the International Association of Athletics Federation and the World Anti Doping Agency.

The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) confirmed it had received the medal Gay won at the London Olympics and would be forwarding it to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

"We were extremely disappointed to learn that Tyson Gay committed a doping offence," USOC spokesman USOC
fake cheap oakley sunglasses spokesman Patrick Sandusky said in an email. relay team will be allowed to keep their medals. The committee has offered varying opinions in past cases.

Whether the United States record the team
cheap oakley sunglasses of Trell Kimmons, Justin Gatlin, Gay and Ryan Bailey set in finishing second to Jamaican in the 4×100 relay stands also will be determined by the finalization of results from the race, USATF spokeswoman Jill Geer said.

The governing body expressed disappointment that one of its biggest names had tested positive.

"USA Track Field is gravely disappointed any time an athlete uses performance enhancing drugs, and Tyson Gay’s case serves as a lesson about the consequences of making poor decisions," USATF chief executive Max Siegel said in a statement.

"We appreciate that Tyson accepted responsibility and has assisted USADA by providing information to help battle the use of PEDs. We thank USADA for their vigilant work on this case and for their leadership in the pursuit of clean sport."

A spokesman for Gay said his client was unlikely to make any public comments on the case for several days.

Gay’s suspension follows hot on the heels of another ban to a big name sprinter.

Jamaican former world record holder Asafa Powell was slapped with an 18 month suspension by Jamaican officials in April after a positive test for the banned stimulant oxilophrine. He is appealing the ban.

Only Jamaican world record holder Usain Bolt has a
wholesale cheap oakley sunglasses faster 100 metres time than Gay, whose 2009 clocking of 9.69 seconds was later equalled by Jamaican Olympic silver medallist Yohan Blake in 2012.

Soft spoken and humble, Gay had seemed destined in 2007 to becoming the world’s great sprinters, winning gold medals in the 100 and 200 metres and 4×100 metres relay at the Osaka world championships.

But injuries and the emergence of Bolt shattered those dreams as the lanky Jamaican dashed to world records and Olympic gold at the 2008 Beijing Games.

Bolt later lower both records to 9.58 seconds for the 100 and 19.19 for the longer sprint and repeated as the Olympic gold medallist in London in 2012.Articles Connexes:

Keith Olbermann
cheap oakleys Replaced By Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow

Who will replaceKeith Olbermann
fake oakleys cheap on Countdown?The word is anchors Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow willfill the void for MSNBC. On Friday night Olbermann made a hasty retreat from his
fake oakleys show. The relationship between Olbermann and the network had been in a free fall, but it is not known why he exited so suddenly.

Countdown was known as the most the liberal voice on cable television. So who could fill such a void to counter the voices of Glenn Beck and
wholesale cheap oakley sunglasses Rush Limbaugh? At least temporarily the network is handing over the reigns to O and Maddow, but will viewer ship follow?

According to The
cheap fake oakleys Boston Herald, Olbermann read from a James Thurber short story during a three minute exit statement Friday night, MSNBC simultaneously e mailed a statement to reporters that the network and host ended their contract. Neither indicated a reason nor addressed whether
fake oakley sunglasses Olbermann quit or was fired. Lawrence O and Rachel Maddow have substituted for Keith Olbermann on Countdown, so they can do the job, but everyone wants to know what prompted the sudden change. The timing is
cheap oakleys interesting. The same week that Comcast bought NBC, Olbermann exits. With Comcast taking the reigns from NBC, was Keith Olbermann too vitriol in his comments? MaybeComcastwants to tone down the rhetoric after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords? It all speculation at this point, but the show will continue with
cheap oakley sunglasses wholesale Lawrence O and Rachel Maddow. The next question is without Olbermann will the show survive?Articles Connexes:

Turning Waste Products into a Successful Business

Successful entrepreneurs possess the ability to think creatively and identify opportunities in their environment. Wendy Newmeyer saw the potential of balsam branches,
cheap oakley sunglasses considered waste products in her husband logging business, and transformed it to sweet smelling pillows and other gift items.

The Difficult Start

Wendy and her husband Jack moved from East Brunswick, New Jersey to Maine in 1979 with a dream of building their own home and have a simple, natural life. Wendy, then 24, even went back to college to study the newest methods of farming in anticipation of their new life because what we thought we would do when we came up here. Their hope was simply to lead a self sufficient life. As she puts it, didn want to become big farmers. The reality, however, was not easy.

They first ventured into several businesses from selling Christmas trees, to breeding German shepherds, to growing vegetables and herbs all with limited success. To save money, they lived in primitive conditions in a run down old trailer without electricity, telephone or running water. The Newmeyers took showers at a local health club and sometimes took a plunge into Moose Pond Brook, which runs through their land, with a bar of soap.

Out of necessity, Jack began harvesting and selling lumber from their 111 acres of land. Jack bought a used bulldozer and cut spruce and fir for pulp. Wendy, seeing all the waste that was made in the wood harvesting process, soon realized that she could make use of her expert seamstress skills and extensive education in drying herbs and flowers to produce a second moneymaking item. Their savings, however, were almost depleted that even the $700 needed to buy the shredder (the heart of the operation) was a sacrifice. A $10,000 inheritance from her grandfather who passed away helped the family tide the difficult times. (Blinding Flash of the Obvious)

Wendy started her foray into the balsam business by selling the cut branches of the balsam fir trees for a local incense factory. Quite coincidentally, she had read in a book that Native Americans used balsam trees as herb for many different home remedies. With her long standing interests in herbs, got me excited into thinking about it [balsams] in a different way, said Wendy.
cheap fake oakley sunglasses She became a supplier to the incense factory, which used her balsam fir boughs to stuff souvenir pillows.

She found other clients who wanted her balsam to make products such as decorative pillows, potpourri and other by products. One client, a publisher of Herb Quarterly that Wendy subscribes to, was so happy to have found Wendy. This client was buying pillows from the incense factory that Wendy supplies and takes the pillows apart to get the balsam. The publisher, who needed balsam to make pillows, paid Wendy $1.75 a pound, compared to the $0.07 a pound paid by the incense factory.

Wendy then launched into a mailing campaign, sending 300 targeted mails to herb businesses nationwide, asking them to buy balsam from her. The response was impressive: 125 placed orders. For about six months, the balsam fir boughs were her only products.

However, Wendy realized that filling orders for raw balsam wouldn keep her busy year round. She then saw the potential of balsam pillows, and began to wonder why no one was making nicer pillows, as the stores that she supplied balsam with only produced plain pillows. She figured that the tourism industry of Maine, with about 10 million visitors annually, could be a big market for souvenir products representative of the state such as balsam pillows. just want a tiny piece of that pie, she said.

morning, I woke up with a (what my SCORE counselor calls a blinding flash of the obvious), that it was up to me to make those pillows! Using skills and interests I had developed which until then seemed to
oakley sunglasses discount have no correlation to each other, I began my company! She opened Maine Balsam Fir Products in 1983, producing a line of balsam fir pillows with scenes of Maine embroidered on them.

The Slow Climb to Success

Success for Wendy did not come easily. Nonetheless, she willingly embraced the difficulties and challenges faced of an unknown start up with hardly any marketing capital. As she looks back, she says, was at a place where I can say that I had nothing to lose. I was living very poorly, and my husband was having some problems so he wasn able to support me. started stitching together on her home sewing machine silk screened fabric pillows that a graphic artist designed for her. She then filled them with her own fragrant dried balsam.

To sell her balsam, she traveled across the state a couple of days a week with a trunk load of pillows that smelled like Christmas. She took a
cheap oakleys door to door approach, traveling throughout the state asking stores if they were willing to carry her product. According to Wendy, early customers did NOT beat a path to my door I had to go out and find them. Personally cold calling the stores in each town, she would show them her pillows, not wanting to give anyone a chance to say no before they could see what she was offering.

It was exhausting work. Nonetheless, the long hours and difficult start did not deter Wendy spirit. wasn just working eight hours a day: I was working for 18 hours, or even 20 hours a day. I remember in my first year when I was waking up at 4 o in the morning and working until midnight taking breaks only to eat. I was working almost every waking hour in such a variety of tasks. While her product line is very limited, was already supporting my family and was able to keep the business moving forward as well. Shop owners, who had seen her products
fake oakleys in other shops, started calling her to supply them as well. By the third month, Wendy hired her first employees to help her fill the orders. She
replica oakleys enlarged her product line, introducing more designs for her stuffed pillows, and started looking for customers outside of Maine. She sold to 169 stores that year.

Through the years Wendy has experimented with trade shows, catalogue sales, the QVC home shopping network, and many other avenues to showcase her products. Her worldwide outlets now exceed 4,400 stores and her
oakleys sunglasses employees have increased to 12. Sales of Maine Balsam Fir Products have reached over $500,000 per year.

The Path to Entrepreneurial Success Begins with Perseverance

The first years in Maine were very difficult. The isolation of living in a rural area, loneliness and poverty proved to be the biggest hurdles in her life. my parents gave me a very good self image and confidence. And so once I got into this direction, there was no turning back. She credits her qualities of being a woman as a significant reason for her success. first of all, are very tireless workers. We very frugal by nature, and not complaining. Almost all her early contacts were women, who proved very supportive to her. was a good thing, because the male encouragement was lacking. Her own husband was critical of her for a long time, expecting her to fail. Instead of wallowing in disappointment from her husband lack of support, became much more determined to succeed. Today, her husband Jack had built her a huge barn serving as the company headquarters and acts as her Raw Product Manager.

Her greatest joy from being an entrepreneur, however, comes from being able to help her community. feel very good about the support I could give into my community. She relates the story of one of the ladies who work for her, Denise. Since Wendy also employs Denise mother, the girl, who was then eight years old, complained that her mother didn have much time to play with them since the mother worked for Wendy. was feeling sorry about it, said Wendy, until the little girl said, she just bought me new shoes! The company has since won numerous awards and recognition for their economic impact on the community.

Today, she volunteers to talk in classes for other new small business owners, sharing her experiences and acquired wisdom. say I am very inspiring, because I am an experiential type of teacher and has tackled all sorts of problems. Her main advice to entrepreneurs? give up. Be determined. When a door shuts in your face,
cheap fake oakley sunglasses look for an open window. She likewise stresses the need to be flexible: who are fixed mentally set themselves up to fail. You have to be flexible. You have to have at least three plans Plan A, then if something happens, you have Plan B and C. still has a long way to go. She is planning to build a new facility to allow her to increase production. But her goal now is to have more balance between her life and her business. a while, I was working too hard and not taking time to smell the roses or the balsam!Articles Connexes:
