Tyson Gay is an American track and field sprinter with a net worth of $12 million. Tyson Gay has earned his net worth from his primary events of the 100 meters and 200 meters. He has won numerous medals in major international competitions such as the 2007 Osaka World Championships. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, he comes from a family of runners.
Tyson Gay (born August 9, 1982) is an American track and field sprinter. His primary events are the 100 meters and 200 meters. His personal bests establish him as the second fastest athlete in the 100 meters and the fifth fastest athlete in the history of the 200 meters, with times of 9.69 (which is a United States record) and 19.58 seconds respectively.
Gay has won numerous medals in major international competitions, including a gold medal sweep of the 100 m, 200 m and 4 x 100 meters relay at the 2007 Osaka World Championships. This made Gay the second sprinter to win all three events at the same World Championships, after Maurice Greene.
At the same meet, Gay suffered a severe hamstring injury in the 200 m event. The injury persisted and this contributed to his failure to win a single medal at the Beijing Olympics. As a participant in the US Anti-Doping Agency's "Project Believe" program, Gay is regularly tested to ensure that his system is clean of performance-enhancing drugs.
Gay also holds the record for the fastest non-winning time for the 100 meters. In August 2009, he ran 9.71 seconds in the World Athletics Championships from Berlin, Germany. Tyson Gay remains the only sprinter to have defeated Usain Bolt in a final since Bolt made his first world record run. Gay ran a wind assisted 9.68 at the 2008 US Olympic trials.
Born on August 9, 1982 in Lexington, Kentucky, Tyson Gay is the only son of Daisy Gay and Greg Mitchell. Athletic prowess was part of family life; Gay's grandmother ran for Eastern Kentucky University and his mother Daisy also competed in her youth, though she was pregnant with her first child by her early teens. Gay's older sister, Tiffany, was a keen sprinter and had a successful high school career. Tiffany and Tyson Gay, encouraged by their mother, raced at every opportunity, training hard at school and on the hills in their neighborhood. There was strong competition between the two, and Gay later said that his sister's quick rea
