Marion Jones Admits Using Steroids Before 2000 Olympics

Marion Jones admitted using steroids before the 2000 Olympics in a recent letter to close family and friends, The Washington Post reported. Jones, a triple gold medalist in Sydney, said she took "the clear" for two years, beginning in 1999, and that she got it from former coach Trevor Graham. Graham told her it was flaxseed oil. "The clear" is a performance-enhancing drug linked to BALCO, the lab at the center of the steroids scandal in professional sports. (WRAL.com)
