Marion Jones Returns Five Olympic Medals from 2000 Sydney Games

Marion Jones has given up the five medals she won at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, days after admitting she used performance-enhancing drugs.
.

The standings normally would be readjusted, with the second-place finisher moving up to gold, third to silver and fourth to bronze. But the silver medalist in Sydney was Greek sprinter Katerina Thanou, who was suspended for two years after being at the center of a major doping scandal at the Athens Olympics.

That Jones eventually would lose the three gold medals and two bronzes she won in 2000 was a given. She pleaded guilty Friday to lying to federal investigators about using steroids, saying she'd taken "the clear" from September 2000 to July 2001. "The clear" is the designer steroid that's been linked to the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, the lab at the center of the steroids scandal in professional sports.

USOC chairman Peter Ueberroth had called on her to "immediately" give up the medals on her own.

"Her admission is long overdue and underscores the shame and dishonor that are inherent with cheating," Ueberroth said Friday.

Jones had been dogged by suspicions and doping allegations for years, angrily denying all of them. On Friday, though, she told a federal judge that then-coach Trevor Graham gave her a substance that he said was flaxseed oil but was actually "the clear."

"By November 2003, I realized he was giving me performance-enhancing drugs," Jones said Friday.

Stupid lying cheating bitch still blames her coach.

That was a pretty strange year for the Olympics. Wasn't there some judge in the Winter Olympics that was bribed by the Russian Mob to give some Russian figure skater a gold medal?

What a disgrace. When will Sosa man-up and give back Aaron's record, BTW?

Why don't they just have LIMITED CLASS and UNLIMITED CLASS?????

That way, there'd be a place for those who dope and those who don't, with less incentive to hide it. Legalize it, and it won't be a problem.

Legalize it, let science and technology develop even better, safer products, and then issue it to the military!!

Fuck all this shit.
We need to start a league that ONLY uses steroid-induced monstrosities of an unholy, cursed science.

I actually want to see a man pick up a car.
I want to see a woman jump over a semi-truck with no mechanical assistance.
I wanna see a Greco-Roman wrasslin' match where somebody's fucking head comes off.

And then have a league for those that don't want cancer or their nuts to shrivel up.

From what I recall she has nothing to return anyway...all the millions from endorsements and whatnot was somehow squandered away.

How about a category called "NO CLASS" so that no-class, lying, cheating bitches like this can compete against other no-class, lying, cheating bitches.

Yeah, and I don't recall seeing too many MJ (the chick) commercials in the past few years.

Unless I missed the ad for a chemically-enhanced douche.

'm getting to the point where I am convinced that they are all doing "something".

Speed, blood doping, HGH, anabolic...whatever...

"If it's worth winning, it's worth cheating over."

NASCAR and IHRA have the non-spec intakes, fuel bladders in the tube frames, 1L too big fuel cell, non-spec aero wings, etc...

Atleast the bitch is already quite broke. I read that she thought her trainer was giving her flaxseed oil.
