Marion was named Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for 2000. She’s won five medals during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney Australia. She’d three gold medals for the 100m, 200m as well as the 4x400m relay race. She’d two bronze for the 4x100m relay and long jump. However, all the medals and prizes dating back from September 2000 were forfeited after she acknowledged in October 2007 that she took performance-enhancing drugs as much back as the 2000 Summer Olympics and that she lied about it to a grand jury investigating performance-enhancer creations by Victor Conte and the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative (BALCO). She also announced her retirement during her entrance.
Jones was among the very famous people to be linked to the BALCO Scandal at time of her entry and following guilty plea. The instance covered more than 20 top level athletes including her ex husband shot putter C.J. Hunter and the father of her first child, 100m sprinter Tim Montgomery. She is presently married to Oba Thompson and she uses his last name. She is now generally known as Marion Jones-Thompson and they have two children.
