Marion Jones gives Oprah Winfrey post-prison interview

Disgraced track star Marion Jones will give her first post-prison interview to Oprah Winfrey. Jones' appearance on Wednesday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" is to be her first interview since she was released September 5 from a Texas federal prison after completing most of her six-month sentence for lying about steroid use. Jones tells Winfrey that it wasn't difficult for her to return the three gold medals she won in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. (Raleigh News & Observer)
