Interesting story! Especially when one considers all of the potential changes in results for events of the past 8 years.. How many runner-ups to Marion are climbing the walls thinking about trading up their medals for gold or silver or getting a bronze? Good for them! Reminds me that so many of my cycling heros have been knocked off of their perch lately because of prformance enhancing drugs: Tyler Hamilton, Floyd Landis, Jan Ullrich, Michael Rasmussen, Bjarne Riis, Joe Papp, Alexandre Vinokourov.. Is it ironic that the banned substance which Marion Jones used is considered a designer drug called "The Clear"? Sounds more like a "happy place" where the aforementioned can only dream about!
