American sprinter Tyson Gay will return from his one-year doping ban on July 3 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The 31-year-old runner holds the American record in the 100m by clocking a 9.69 in 2009.

“Lausanne has always been one of my favorite meets, and I’m thrilled to have it be my opening meet of 2014,” Gay said in a press release. “I have run fast times here. I have been training for several months, and will be ready on July 3.”

The record holder is expected to race in the 100m against one of his former 4x100m relay teammates, Justin Gatlin. Gatlin is undefeated this season, and finished second to Gay in the 100m at last year’s U.S. Championships.
