The 2012 U.S. Olympic 4x100m relay team has been stripped of its silver medals by the International Olympic Committee due to Tyson Gay‘s doping, NBC Sports reported Wednesday.
The team finished behind Jamaica in the London Olympics.
In a statement, USOC chief communications officer Patrick Sandusky said that the medal would be returned.
NBC Sports reported that Gay failed drug tests in summer 2013 and used a prohibited substance less than three weeks before race at the London Olympics.
Gay returned his silver medal to the U.S. Olympic Committee last May, but his teammates spent one year not knowing if they would keep their medals, NBC Sports said.
