Sprinter Marion Jones eyes comeback

Track and field superstar Marion Jones' bid to get her athletic career back on track brought her to Tulsa on Saturday for a workout with Tulsa Shock coach Nolan Richardson. Jones was stripped of five medals she won in the 2000 Summer Olympics after she admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs. Now, at age 34 and after giving birth to her third child just eight months ago, Jones is attempting an athletic comeback — this time in basketball. (Tulsa World)
