LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- In his return from a one-year doping ban, Tyson Gay finished second to Justin Gatlin, who ran a year-best 9.80 seconds in the 100 meters at the Athletissima.

Gatlin pulled away after 40 meters.

Gay clocked 9.93 to beat Michael Rodgers. It was a decent performance from Gay, but still far from the level that made him the second-fastest sprinter behind Usain Bolt. Gay won the 100 at Athletissima in 9.79 a year ago.

Gay, the 2007 world champion, tested positive last year for an anabolic steroid. He cooperated with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's investigation to have his doping suspension reduced to one year.
