Marion Jones all set to skip 07 season

16 June 2007

Former Olympic sprint champion Marion Jones, who has been absent from the track for a while now, will continue her lay-off as she almost certain of not competing in the 2007 season.

The report came from her coach Steve Riddick, who told The Associated Press this week the multi Olympic gold medallist with sit-out this season.

“I’m almost sure she isn’t,” Riddick confirmed with the press, adding that if she was going to run, he would have known by now.

Jones is the defending U.S. 100m champion, following a notable return to track last year after her reason was interrupt when drug test showed her “A” sample being positive for the banned endurance-enhancer EPO.

She, however, was acquitted when her “B” sample came out negative.

The 31-year-old Jones married Barbadian former Olympic medallist Obadele Thompson in an extremely private, small ceremony in a small town near Raleigh, N.C., on Feb. 27.

The couple resides in Thompson’s home in Austin, Texas, USA.
