Marion Jones wins the 100 meters in 11.10 in the USA Track & Field Championships at IUPUI's Michael A. Carroll Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana on Friday, June 23, 2006.
Marion Jones won her 14th U.S. championship but first sprint title since 2002. Her time was 11.10, putting her seven-hundreds of a second ahead of two world champions, Lauryn Williams and Torri Edwards.

Despite the drug accusations that have followed Jones, she was warmly received. She waved and thanked fans after the race.

"I really want to thank everybody for their support," she told the crowd through the public address system. "I feel good. I'm back, and doing my thing."

Gatlin said he applauds Jones' comeback. He is coached by Trevor Graham, who formerly coached Jones.
