Damn it! Marion failed test last June!
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:32:17 pm »
Is there no end to these drug scandals? Now Marion Jones is reported to failed her first test last June! It's why she couldn't compete in a race a few months ago!  >:(

This has to stop!

There was a more recent test. Years before she was only suspected because of her association with BALCO. So she left the meet in Zurich.  :(

Cleared. Sometimes we shouldn't rush to judgement of some athletes so quickly. Has she at one time or another done steroids? Perhaps. But we know some of her competitors have and they still couldn't beat her so what does that tell us? She's that damn good.
