Athlete actual ADMITS to taking drugs


Wow, an athlete who actually admits to what she has been accused of: drugging.

Track star Marion Jones has acknowledged using steroids as she prepared for the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney and is scheduled to plead guilty today in New York to two counts of lying to federal agents about her drug use and an unrelated financial matter, according to a letter Jones sent to close family and friends.

I want to apologize to you all for all of this,” Jones said. “I am sorry for disappointing you all in so many ways.”

While Jones’s admissions could cost her the three gold and two bronze medals she won in Sydney she should gain as much for her honesty. We can hope it is contagious.
