Stripped of Her Medals
Marion Jones
 
Marion Jones was a hero to millions. Considered to be the fastest woman alive and perhaps the finest female athlete in the world, Marion gained fans around the world when she competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. She ran her way into history by winning three gold medals and two bronze medals in track and field. "Seemingly blessed with superhuman talent, Marion Jones looked like she had it all," Oprah says. "Poise. Beauty. And a smile that could light up the stands."

With suspicion mounting that she used performance-enhancing drugs, Marion denied the accusations.
