Report: Marion Jones Failed Drug Test


Five-time Olympic medalist Marion Jones failed an initial doping test at the U.S. track and field championships where she won the 100 meters in June, people familiar with the results told The Associated Press. Jones' "A" sample tested positive for the banned performance enhancer EPO at the event in Indianapolis, one source told the AP on condition of anonymity because the official results are not yet public. If a second, or "B" sample, also tests positive, Jones, who lives in Raleigh, would face a minimum two-year ban from the sport. (WRAL.com)
