Johnson feels Jones should quit

21 September 2006

Michael Johnson believes Marion Jones should quit athletics despite her 'B' test for erythropoietin (EPO) testing negative.

Jones' initial sample at the USA Track and Field Championships in June tested positive for the blood-boosting hormone, which Johnson feels has tarnished the sprinter's image.

Johnson, the 400 metres and 200m world record holder, wrote in his column in the Daily Telegraph: "I don't believe Jones will ever be able to repair her image or get back to the type of performances that made her one of the highest profile women athletes in the world.

"There has been far too much damage done to her reputation due to, if nothing else, the people she has surrounded herself with the last several years - some of whom have been involved in some of the largest drug scandals in the sport.

"Jones also has passed her prime as an athlete and lost several good years dealing with these scandals and allegations which have surely made it difficult to focus."

"For the sake of her own well-being, and the sake of the sport, it would be best if Jones just went away quietly to raise her son."
