Olympic Medal Winner Stripped of Title

Five time olympic medalist Marion Jones has been officially stripped of her honors and her name will be wiped from the record books following her admission that she was a drug cheat.
     The International Olympic Committee also banned the disgraced American athlete from attending next year's Beijing Olympics in any capacity and says it could bar her from future games as well.
      Jones has already handed back the three gold medals and two bronze she won at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
