Thread: Marion Jones used "the clear" from Balco

    Default Marion Jones used "the clear" from Balco

    Apparently she now admits to have used "the clear" which she got from Barry Bonds' "nutritionists" at BALCO.

    She will probably have to give back her 5 gold medals and could face jail time.

    Makes you wonder who's next?

    I recently heard from someone who was in a position to know that Lance was not as pure and innocent as he claimed.

    In cycling, that's probably an advantage. Ever sit on one of those seats for an extended period of time?

    UNC athletic dept officials are debating whether or not to remove her pictures that hang in the "Hall of Honor" for Track & Field.

    She wasn't using while at Carolina, but she earned the spot in the Hall of Honor based on her Olympic success, not college success, which is the thought process behind it.

    She was also a part of the NCAA 1994 women's basketball championship team at Carolina.

    I remember from his book that he scored freakishly high on lung capacity test as a teenager.

    Not saying be didn't dope, but the was blessed with an extraordinary genetic edge for endurance.

    Plus, I don't think he every spent much time in the Bay Area
