Marion Jones Our Fallen Star
White Plains, NY
Marion Jones was the most celebrated female track star in the history of track and field. Today, all her accomplishments and her reputation were destroyed by her admission to using performance enhancing drugs.
Certainly, she will be stripped of her Olympic Medals and her records will be removed from the annals of track and field. This is more than a tragedy… this was a dynamic and engaging athlete that provided hope and inspiration to millions.
We say goodbye to another American Sports Legend this evening and are now wondering who is next to fall from grace.
