Marian Jones Should Return Olympic Medals, Says Ex-White House Drug Spokesman Bob Weiner
Date:10/4/2007

Guilt Admission Shows Not Everything Is A Victory, Especially When People Control Own Lives; But Huge Progress Against Drugs In Sport Last Ten Years Weiner Seeks Prosecution Of Everyone In Her Entourage Including Coach;

Other Athletes And Children Beware

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Marian Jones should give back her five 2000 Olympic medals, or the Olympics should force her to return them," says Bob Weiner, White House Office of National Drug Policy spokesman 1995-2001, who was on the U.S. government official Olympic delegation in 2000 and coordinated White House drug policy media at the Sydney Olympics where Jones competed.

"Jones' guilt admission shows that not everything is a victory, especially when people control their own lives," says Weiner, who assisted in the creation of the World and U.S. Anti-Doping Agencies. "But we've made huge progress given the fact that under the various forms of pressure Jones has to admit guilt, including now telling the truth to the court to which she had lied. That revelation would not have happened ten years ago. Now, with WADA and USADA, there is no such thing as an excuse. Doping is illegal in sport and in life, and it will be prosecuted under law and by the sports committees."

"Everyone who assisted and supported her drug use, including her coach, should also be prosecuted," Weiner urged. "The Jones guilty plea and likely jail sentence should be message to all other sports stars and children who follow their lead (a million youth illegally use steroids each year) that drugs are not only harmful, but illegal. They can destroy lives through deteriorating health as well as punishment through the legal system."

Jones is now admitting using steroids for the 2000 Olympics where she won five medals including three gold, and she now states she lied to the courts and to U.S. and world sports doping authorities.
