U.S. Olympic Committee statement regarding 4x100-meter disqualification

The IOC hands down its decision in stripping the USA 4x100m relay team of its silver medals from London 2012 Games.

Attributable to Patrick Sandusky, USOC chief communications and public affairs officer:

"As expected, following USADA's decision in the Tyson Gay case, the IOC today confirmed that the U.S. team has been disqualified from the 4x100-meter race that was part of the athletics competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games. We will begin efforts to have the medals returned, and support all measures to protect clean athletes."
