Exclamation Marion Jones' Doping Admission May Lead To Two Honors For Venus Williams

Disgraced US track star Marion Jones will admit today to taking steriods when she won her five Olympic medals in 2000. In 2000, she was named Associated Press and Reuters Female Athlete of the Year, with Venus coming in second for both honors. I would think that because she is going to be stripped of medals she won in 2000, she will be stripped of those honors too and the Female Athlete of the Year would be awarde to Venus who, IMO, was more deserving of both awards.

Good Luck In 2012 To The Following:
Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Whitney Elizabeth Houston|1963-2012|RIP Queen of Music

Re: Marion Jones' Doping Admission May Lead To Two Honors For Venus Williams

would Venus care?

I don't think any of the athletes would care. The moment has passed.

Re: Marion Jones' Doping Admission May Lead To Two Honors For Venus Williams

so sad that Marion was caught up in doping and lied about it. such a talent!

anyway, good for Venus if she ultimately is named Female Athlete of 2000. A just reward.

For the AP honor, yes, but for Reuters, it might have been someone else.
