As you can imagine, track and field made plenty of headlines in newsprint Monday.
American record holder Tyson Gay‘s admission to a positive drug test made the front page of The New York Times (bottom right corner), his hometown newspaper, the Lexington Herald-Leader, and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, where he went to college.
In Jamaica, Asafa Powell‘s positive test was front and center on one of the nation’s two biggest national newspapers — the Jamaica Observer.

Canadian skier Phil Brown was fortunate to walk away from an airborne crash at the World Cup season opener in Soelden, Austria, on Sunday.
Brown failed to finish his first run, losing contact with the snow early on and falling hard onto his side.
He tweeted a video of the crash, with slow-motion replays, with a soundtrack of Irish singer Enya‘s “Only Time.”
The World Cup season continues with men’s and women’s slaloms in Levi, Finland, in three weeks.

Usain Bolt, the singer?
Bolt teased what appeared to be a recording-studio session in an Instagram video Monday, a short clip that ended with Wednesday’s date, perhaps a sign of more to come.
The video included shots of a guitarist, drummer, keyboardist and three female singers before showing Bolt in front of a microphone adjusting headphones.
Bolt has experience singing in front of crowds, having performed Queen and Kings of Leon at recent Oktoberfest visits in Munich.
