UnCategorized One of the brightest stars from Belize that crashed and burned in the long run is Marion Lois Jones. Marion was born of a Belizean mother and an African American father in Los Angeles California. She held dual citizenships in both the United States and Belize. As an outlet for her grief as a teenager from the death of her older half brother, she turned to sports and became one of the most dominating sportswomen in California high school athletics. She had lettered in athletics, basketball and other sports before being granted a track and field scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She met and married a track coach of the school in 1998. She entered the limelight in the Sydney 2000 Olympics under the tutelage of Trevor Graham. She proudly announced that she would win all five gold medals in the competitions she would be participating in. She was only able to win three golds and two bronze medals. Despite her earlier pronouncements, her achievements were still considered sterling and made her a media darling during the Olympiad in Sydney. Her travails started even during the Sydney Olympics when her husband was found to have been a steroid user and testified under oath that he saw his wife inject drugs from Trevor Graham. Trevor Graham was connected to Victor Conte who operated Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative or BALCO. When questioned for such use of performance enhancing drugs, she testified before Congress that she did not use any during her competitions. Up until 2007, she denied the use of such drugs in every venue when presented to her. Her common response that she never tested positive for performance enhancing substances in all of her competitions be it in high school up until her Olympic gold medal runs. Victor Conte, in December 2004 interview, said he had personally given Jones five different illegal performance enhancing drugs before, during and after the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Further investigative reports yielded found that Jones had received drugs from BALCO based on documentary and testimonial evidence from Jones’ ex-husband CJ Hunter. In Hunter’s testimony before a federal grand jury, he said that Jones had used banned drugs well before the Sydney Olympiad. The said drugs were called "nutritional supplements", an experimental mixture of steroids said to be undetectable in drug screening procedures present at the time. It was only in 2006 during the USA Track and Field Championships that Marion Jones’ urine tested positive for Erythropoietin or EPO, a banned performance enhancer. She denied such use and pulled out of future tournaments citing "personal reasons." Her second sample tested negative, thus absolving her of any steroid use. She did later admit though that she lied to federal agents about her steroid use before the Sydney Olympiad and she plead guilty to perjury. While the maximum penalty is five years, her cooperation netted her a commuted sentence of six months. This led her to final public admission of steroid use prior to the Olympics. As a result, she had to return her medals and then went on to prison for her misdeeds that she could not run away from. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
