Jones gets back to winning ways

1 May 2005

US sprinter Marion Jones won her first race in 11 months after claiming victory in a 100m on the Caribbean island of Martinique on Saturday. But boyfriend Tim Montgomery could only finish fourth behind Maurice Greene in his 100m race.

Jones, who struggled in her first two races this season, clocked a time of 11.28 seconds, well off her personal best of 10.65.

Greene won his race in 10.03 seconds with Montgomery managing 10.19.

The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has accused Montgomery of doping violations and he is awaiting a hearing before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in June.

Jones has also been investigated by the USADA, but she has not been charged.

The sprinter, who won five medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, has also never failed a drugs test.

In December, BALCO founder Victor Conte accused Jones of using performance-enhancing drugs and she has filed a $25m defamation suit against him.
