I've always been a fan of Marion Jones, so to hear this was disappointing. I really wonder if the scandal has really gotten to her and if she has never recovered from her time away from the track. Either way, she was a great role model who has been forever sullied by her alleged association with drugs.

WOW! That is insane! It's not like she's out of shape.

she's only been training for < a year, so with more time maybe she can come back. plus it's hard to run with momma hips and materna-boobs ;)

... and it's not her preferred event. Even though she is a very good 400m runner.

The drug scandal had to be somewhat true. Did anyone NOT notice how much leaner and more feminine looking she became after all that was exposed? You could clearly see she quit taking some kind of enhancing substance. I wish I had some pics...

I don't know much about running so what's a good time for the 400m?

Marion is one of my favourite athletes, so to hear this is really disspaointing.
She'll come back.

This is Ana Guevara's and Tonique Williams' event she has no business messing with this event.

I can step across 400m in one second. It's handy having legs that are 7689ft long.

lets put it this way, with a time of 55 seconds, she would only win most girls high school races by 2-3 seconds:eek:
she would also lose her fair share at the bigger meets

top 8 times from last year's new york state girls championship meet

1 Erica Young 12 Bellport-I 54.25 10
2 Javan Benjiman 11 Hempstead-I 54.46 8
3 Dominique Blake 12 Harry Truman-I 54.55 6
4 DeDe Richemond 11 Suffern-I 55.86 4
5 Michelle Seibert 11 Ward Melville-I 56.30 2
6 Chelsea Berry 10 Lowville-II 56.62 1
7 Caroline Brody 12 Rye-II 58.61
8 Christina Lambros 12 Wilson-II 58.77

With a time of 55 seconds, even women 400m hurdlers would beat her!

But I love Marion Jones and I want to see her back in the 100m and 200m!!!

not a very good time at all, could of been drugs, but i also think having a baby probably is effecting her physically in her comeback, i mean she looks fit but that doesnt mean she IS fit.

I'm a huge fan of hers and was so disappointed to hear this. In 2000 Marion ran the 400m in 49.59. Now a whole 5 seconds slower??? I'm really curious to see what 100m and 200m times she runs this year. Her best last year was at the Home Depot meet running a 11.04 100m, which is slow compared to her personal best of 10.65 in 1998. Thank goodness she only runs the 400m once per year.

Hopefully. She really should stick to long jumping if she's going to run this slow, because she will not make the World Championship team this summer being sluggish. All these young new American girls are tearing her up. Allyson Felix, Muna Lee, Lauryn Campbell, LaTasha Colander, among others all beat her last year in 100, and 200m races. The Queen of track is fading. Did I mention how much I hate Victor Conte for doing that 20/20 interview? I mean I'm not in a position to say whether or not she did drugs, but how dirty to go on nationwide television and attempt to ruin someone's career.

Ok i didn't watch this interview so if i'm all wrong here feel free to let me know... But what i'm assuming is he leveled aligations against her that involved the use of performance inhancing substances ?

Now i'm not saying she took drugs but if she did she ought to be exposed and i can't see any problem with what he did if that's the case.
