Marion Jones eyes basketball career


Disgraced former track and field star Marion Jones has been training with the WNBA's San Antonio Silver Stars with a view to making a comeback in basketball for European and US teams at age 34. The one-time hero of the 2000 Sydney Olympics was released from a federal prison in September of last year after serving a six-month sentence for lying about taking performance-enhancing drugs and her role in a check fraud plot.
