Tyson Gay, the American record holder in the 100 meters (9.71), and World Champ and Olympic medalist, has signed an agreement with EAS Nutrition. During his buildup for London 2012, Tyson Gay will use EAS Sports Nutrition products which are tested for all banned substances and have the unique 100% certified label.

EAS has signed with one of America's most popular and talented sprinters, Tyson Gay. It will be interesting to see how he develops through 2012 as he prepares for Eugene 2012 and London 2012.

The road to London 2012 and Eugene 2012 is built through great coaching, consistent workouts, proper nutrition, focus and lots of rest. Tyson Gay, Yohan Blake, Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, Walter Dix, Christophe Lemaitre, could be one of the most anticipated finals in the 100 meters (and then, the 200 meters) in London 2012. Oh, the anticipation!

Abbott's EAS Sports Nutrition brand is partnering with American Track and Field star Tyson Gay to serve as an ambassador for the EAS new 100% Certified program, through which all EAS sports nutrition products are banned substance tested by industry-leading, independent, laboratories and marked with a "tested and true" seal.  Tyson, 28, has distinguished himself as a strong supporter of anti-doping initiatives through his work with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's "Project Believe" program during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where he was regularly tested to ensure the absence of performance-enhancing drugs.

Now, the world champion sprinter is seeking a return trip to the Olympic Games next summer in London and an opportunity to capture his first Olympic medal. Tyson plans to compete in several early season domestic meets in the spring of 2012, before heading to the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore.

As an EAS Sports Nutrition ambassador, Tyson joins fellow "Team EAS" members Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals) and Danny Granger (Indiana Pacers) to help raise awareness for the importance of performance nutrition and clean competition in all sports at all levels.  
"Every time I put something in my body, I have to think about what it is, where it came from and how it will impact my training and racing," said Tyson.  "I am excited to be part of the EAS Sports Nutrition 100% Certified program and supporting nutrition education and informed choices around safe supplement use."
