Marion Jones is a United States track star who has won numerous medals in international competition. She won 5 medals at the 2000 Olympic Games excelling at the 100m, 200m, and high jump. After much speculation and controversy in October 2007 Jones admitted that she used anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs before the 2000 Olympics. She was stripped of all of her medals since the year 2000, including all Olympic medals. Since high school Marion had been accused of doping directly and indirectly because of her size and ability. When she competed Marion Jones was huge and she towered over her competition. Jones admitted lying to friends, press, and 2 grand juries about using steroids. She was suspended from competition for 2 years and retired on October 5, 2007. She also was arrested and given a 6 month prison term which she started serving March 7, 2008 and was released September 5, 2008. Marion Jones used to be one of the most decorated and admired American athletes. Now she is looked at as a cheat, someone who needed drugs to get that edge over her competition.
Next time you do a story make sure to get your history straight. Your “King Phillip of Macedon invading Greece statement” – Macedonia was a city state of Greece as were other parts of now modernly known Greece (Crete, Athens, etc.) so therefor Macedonia didn’t invade Greece it was a part of it. There were wars amongst them yes but it was NEVER Macedonia is one country and Greece is another. Just cause a random history-less country today wants to call themselves Macedonia doesn’t mean they can steal Greece’s history as well. And people like you writing online shouldn’t feed into that stupidity.
