Marion Jones Loses Olympic Medals

In the wake of her doping admission, track and field's governing body has handed down a severe punishment for Marion Jones, a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill.

The International Association of Athletics Federation has annulled all of
Marion Jones' track results dating back to September 2000.

Among the results removed from their records include Jones' Olympic and world championship titles.

Jones was also ordered to return all prize money she earned during that period and has been suspended from all track competitions for two years.

Last month Marion Jones admitted that she took designer steroids from September 2000 to July 2001.

    I applaud Marion. It takes real class to admit your mistakes to the world. Even though she might not have been the only one doping, the fact she admitted to it before any trial (unlike Barry Bonds) makes me hope she can have some sort of comeback. Good Luck Marion!
