The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has annulled all sprinter Marion Jones's results dating back to September 2000.

Athletes who finished behind sprinter Jones at the 2000 Olympics are now set to move up the finishing order.

She won five medals, including three golds, in Sydney but they will be re-allocated by the International Olympic Committee next month. Jones is to serve a two-year ban after admitting she used steroids.


Looks like the sprinter is banned until 2009 and will have to return all winning medals. The advent of doping in sport is seemingly still there with numerous pro sporting players being accused often.

What are BTS readers thoughts on this? Personally, I think this is great for sports -- proving that cheaters don't win.

I think they need to take all the cash $$$$$$ out of sports and let people run, jump and play for...

Pride and the love of the game.

Cash has runined sports as it has just about every other walk of life.

Play for pride.

Play to win... Always.
