The Washington Submit documented Thursday that the Olympic star Marion Jones was juicing prior to the 2000 Olympics. Marion Jones wrote a letter confessing to her family members and buddies. I surprise who leaked the facts in that letter? As soon as a triple gold medalist in Sydney was beneath the “impact” the flax-seed oil she was using was not “the distinct”. Hold out a sec, I thought Marion was applying flax-seed oil? How the real truth bends to any angle! The obvious is a name of a general performance-boosting drug manufactured by BALCO. The identical BALCO that may well be connected to House Run King Barry Bonds.
Also in the Submit Jones will plead responsible Friday in New York to two counts of lying to federal agents about the drug use and an unrelated financial matter. The newspaper reviews, “I want to apologize for all of this” quoting a person (remember that relatives or good friend?) who obtained a duplicate of the letter. The letter also states, “I am sorry for disappointing you all in so several strategies.”
Sucks to be her, due to the fact this confession could pony up the five medals she received at the Sydney Olympics. Her target participating in the Olympics was to convey home 5 gold medals. Do you really feel bad for her now? Pandora’s Box has been open and a lot of personnel are coming out sprinting! Victor Conte head of the Bay Location Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) regularly accused Jones of doping.
That have to have been some potent tasting flax-seed oil, due to the fact in 2003 Jones among the lots of other athletes testified at a San Francisco federal grand jury that was investigating… yup BALCO. Her boyfriend (past, or present?) Tim Montgomery was offered a two-year ban for doping in late 2005. December 2004 the Intercontinental Olympic Committee declared an investigation on doping allegations versus Jones.
Previous yr she analyzed favourable for EPO a performance-maximizing drug. She quickly quit the European observe tour forfeiting an estimated $300,000 in visual appeal and efficiency costs. When she returned to the states she tested adverse to a urine sample connecting EPO.
Wait! it gets far better. Jones was reported stating, “Crimson flags should really have been elevated when he explained to me not to notify everyone.” If another person tells me not to convey to anybody, a lightbulb goes off and it can be not a good a person! So where does this financial make any difference slide into spot? Jones lied about a $25k test specified to her by Montgomery (boyfriend) who pleaded guilty in New York concerning a multimillion-dollar band fraud and revenue-laundering scheme. What the hell is heading on below? Ole’ Timothy wasn’t by yourself on this “monetary” scheme Jones’ former agent, Charles Wells, and mentor Steven Riddick was between them. I believe prescription drugs are the minimum of her concern due to the fact her name is shot. Now if her coach, boyfriend, and agent was apart of this…
Keep tuned on a acquiring tale on Barry Bonds! again to you Alex
