So how rich is Tyson Gay? It is estimated that Tyson’s net worth is $15 million, the main source of this sum of money is his activities as a sportsman. As his name is known all over the world , there is no doubt that different companies would want to use his fame in their endorsements, provided he is active. This would also add to his net worth. There is a high possibility that this sum of money will become higher as he is now 32 years old and even if his career as a sprinter might not last long, he will probably be able to involve himself in other activities.

Tyson became familiar with sports when he was still very young, as his mother and his sister were also sprinters. Tyson was supported by his mother and this encouraged him to train even more and work harder in order to become the best. When attending Lafayette High School, he also continued training and became one of the fastest students in his school. In 2001 Tyson participated in the Kentucky High School State Championship and won a gold medal there. Later, Gay attended Borton County Community College and, of course, continued working hard in order to improve his results even more. Soon Tyson was ready to begin his professional career. In 2005 he participated in the World Track and Field Championships. Despite the fact that he finished fourth in the 100 meters, he still proved that he had the necessary skills. Step by step Tyson Gay’s net worth grew and his name became more recognized among other athletes. In 2006 he again proved that he is one of the best sprinters in the world as he won the 2006 IAAF World Athletics 100 meters final. This had a huge impact on the growth of Tyson’s net worth and his fame. However, in 2011 Tyson experienced a severe injury and had to stop competing for almost a year. In 2012 he participated in the Olympics and won a silver medal. Unfortunately, in 2013 he was suspended for a doping offense until 2014. Let’s hope that soon he will recover his competitive edge, and participate in competitions, and that he will achieve even more.

If to talk about Tyson Gay’s personal life, it can be said that he is not married, but has a child with Shoshana Boyd. What is more, Tyson is very religious and attends church services as much as he can. Finally, Tyson is one of the most hardworking and devoted sportsmen.
