Marion Jones Gives Up Medals
Marion Jones, five time Olympic gold medalist, has given up the medals she won at the Sydney Olympics days after admitting she used steroids. I saw her press conference on TV and it was really sad. I can't imagine how devastated she must feel. The normal protocol would be for Jones to give her medals to the U.S. Olympic Committee, which then would return them to the International Olympic Committee. Though this is sad for Ms. Jones it does send a positive message to the youth of America. Honesty is the best policy, and don't do drugs!
