Basically the chick needed to cheat to win, she also served time in federal prison.  She had to return her Olympic medals.  So inspirational, such a role model.  For all of the reasons listed previously and in the article below, Marion Jones is one strong and independent woman!

 

Marion Jones, (born October 12, 1975, Los Angeles, California, U.S.), American athlete, who, at the 2000 Olympic Games, became the first woman to win five track-and-field medals at a single Olympics. In 2007, however, she admitted to using banned substances and subsequently returned the medals.

Jones early displayed talent on the track, and her family moved several times during her adolescence so that she could compete on prominent junior-high and high-school teams. By the time she was 12, Jones had begun competing internationally. She was also an accomplished high-school basketball player, winning California’s Division I Player of the Year award in 1993. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a basketball scholarship, and in 1994 she helped the women’s basketball team win the national title. Jones decided to sit out the 1995–96 basketball season in order to focus on track and on the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. A series of foot injuries, however, prevented her from trying out for the U.S. Olympic team. She then returned to basketball, and in 1997 she was named the Most Valuable Player of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

After graduating in 1997, Jones concentrated on track. At the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, she won gold medals in the 100 meters (10.75 sec) and the 200 meters (21.84 sec) and as a member of the 4 × 400-metre relay team (3 min 22.62 sec); she also claimed bronze medals in the long jump and the 4 × 100-metre relay. At the 2001 world championships, Jones won gold medals in the 200 meters and the 4 × 100-metre relay, and she went undefeated during the 2002 season. She took much of 2003 off because of the birth of her son. She returned to athletics in 2004 but was not up to her previous form. At the Olympic Games in Athens that year, she managed only a fifth-place finish in the long jump.

Through much of her career, Jones was suspected of using steroids. In 2003 a federal investigation into illegal steroid distribution by the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO) led to allegations by BALCO founder Victor Conte and Jones’s ex-husband, C.J. Hunter, that the sprinter used banned substances. Jones, who had never failed a drug test at that time, denied the allegations. In 2006 she tested positive for a banned substance but was later cleared by a follow-up test. The following year, however, she pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about her drug use and admitted to having taken steroids. In November 2007 track and field’s international governing body—the International Association of Athletics Federations—annulled all of Jones’s results since September 2000, including her Olympic titles. The International Olympic Committee officially stripped Jones of her five medals from the Sydney Games the following month. In January 2008 she was sentenced to six months in prison for providing false statements to federal investigators about her steroid use and for her involvement in a check-fraud scheme.

In an attempt to revive her long-dormant basketball career, Jones signed with the Tulsa Shock of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) in 2010 but was cut 15 games into the 2011 WNBA season.

Ha ha she got stripped of her medals and cut from the WNBA team, ha ha, serves that cunt right for being a cheater cunt. She’s 43 years old now, just another old, broke, wretched cunt, loser nobody. From Olympic Champion, to broke ugly cunt, you gotta love it.

Does anyone even watch the WNBA? I thought it was just a sport to quiet the females endless whining that they wanted to play in the pros. A boys High School team can easily beat them. That aside, your typical female willing to do anything to get what she wants. I believe this is far more prevalent within competitive sports than we know on both men and female sides, to be fair.

To make matters worse, they’ve never profited ever in their 23 years and counting since their inception into the (cough cough) modern sports world. And to make it a even bigger joke than it already is, they demanded more money on top of it.

So basically the NBA has been losing money this whole time to watch Lesbians(cunts) that suck at basketball to run up and down the court.

The only reason they keep this shit show running is because they don’t want to piss of the women that watch the NBA, so they figure they’ll pander to the feminists so they don’t piss off the women that watch the real sport, the NBA.

Another example of an athlete who gave no thoughts towards long term personal sustainment and ultimately was stripped of any athletic windfalls due to their greed. 

Instead of serving as a positive role model for kids and adults, she will always be remembered for being just another athlete with tremendous talent and God given abilities that threw it all away because of hubris.
