Marion Jones Tests Positive for EPO

 

Marion Jones, five time Olympic medalist and holder of 12 of the 20 fastest 100m sprints for women has returned a positive drug test. Her 'A' sample tested positive for EPO. If the 'B' sample also tests positive she will likely be banned for 2 years.

Jones been connected with a string of drug controversies including having two partners (Hunter - steroids, Montgomery - doping) and a coach (Trevor Graham - association with a dozen drug cheats) banned.

In 1992 Jones was suspended for failing to take a drug test. The suspension was overturned on appeal. In 2004 BALCO founder Victor Conte claimed he had supplied Jones with a banned substance and watched her inject it.

Time to remove your head from the sand. There has been questions over Jones for a long time. Previously it came down to her word against somebody elses, now there appears to be physical evidence. This is always the reaction when somebody tests positive - "I didn't do it, somebody is out to get me..."

She might be telling the truth but all evidence seems to indicate otherwise. For example: when she parted ways with Trevor Graham her next choice for coach was Charlie Francis, the Canadian who encouraged and devised the drugs programme that for Ben Johnson. Interesting huh?
