Sports log: Sprinter Tyson Gay tests positive

TRACK AND FIELD

American 100-meter record holder Tyson Gay tested positive for a banned substance and said he will pull out of the world championships next month in Moscow. Gay wouldn’t reveal the substance in a phone conversation from Amsterdam on Sunday, but he said he was notified by the US Anti-Doping Agency late last week that a sample came back positive from a May 16 out-of-competition test. He said he will have his ‘‘B'’ sample tested soon, possibly as early as this week . . . Former 100-meter world-record holder Asafa Powell and Jamaican teammate Sherone Simpson have tested positive for banned stimulants, their agent told The Associated Press.
