Paris - American sprinter Tyson Gay has won the second 100m race of his comeback after a drugs ban when he clocked a modest 10.04sec at a meeting in the Paris suburb of Montreuil on Monday.
In steady drizzle, Gay beat Trinidad and Tobago's Richard Thompson, who timed 10.16, into second place, with Norway's Jaysuma Saidy-Ndure third in 10.23.
Last week, in the Lausanne Diamond meet, Gay was trumped by fellow-American Justin Gatlin in his first race back. Gatlin won in a blistering 9.80, with Gay trailing in second in 9.93.
Gay was banned in June 2013 after testing positive for a banned anabolic steroid in two out-of-competition tests.
His ban, which was reduced from two years by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) due to Gay's cooperation, ended on June 23.
