Marion Jones Net Worth 2020 – Marion Jones is a former world champion track and field athlete and a former professional basketball player for the Tulsa Shock in the WNBA.
Born Marion Lois Jones on October 12, 1975 in Los Angeles, California to African-American George Jones and Belizean Marion, she holds dual citizenship with the United States and Belize. A
t a young age, she already turned to sports such as running, pickup basketball games and anything her brother Albert Kelly did athletically. When she was 15, she already dominated California high school athletics both on the tracks and the basketball courts.
Marion was named Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for 2000. She has won five medals during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney Australia.
She had three gold medals for the 100m, 200m and the 4x400m relay. She had two bronze for the 4x100m relay and long jump.
However, all the medals and prizes dating back from September 2000 were forfeited after she admitted in October 2007 that she took performance-enhancing drugs as far back as the 2000 Summer Olympics and that she lied about it to a grand jury investigating performance-enhancer creations by Victor Conte and the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative (BALCO).
She also announced her retirement during her admission.
Jones was one of the most famous people to be linked to the BALCO Scandal at the time of her admission and subsequent guilty plea.
The case covered more than 20 top level athletes including her ex-husband shot putter C.J. Hunter and the father of her first child, 100m sprinter Tim Montgomery.
She is presently married to Oba Thompson and she uses his last name. She is now known as Marion Jones-Thompson and they have two children.
