Marion Jones is still winning, and she's getting faster. Jones ran her fastest time in nearly four years, winning the 100 meters in 10.93 seconds Saturday at the Gaz de France meet. It was her best performance since giving birth to her son in June 2003. The 2000 Olympics triple gold medalist ran away from Sherone Simpson and Torri Edwards in the last 30 meters to clock the second-best time of 2006. (Yahoo! Sports)
