American former sprint queen Marion Jones has delayed making her athletics comeback because she is still some weeks away from a return to competitive action, according to her agent Charles Wells.

Jones, the 2000 three-time Sydney Olympic champion was not listed among the competitors down to participate at Saturday's Walnut Mount SAC meeting in California, a meeting she usually uses to launch her season.

"She's (Jones) still not ready," Wells was quoted as saying on Friday. "In another three weeks she should be ready to make an appearance."

Since being identified as one of the many top athletes who did associated with BALCO, the American sprinter has come nowhere near her late 1990s peaking form and Wells said she is still not ready for her comeback, but should be in another three weeks.

In the past 12 months Jones has been struggling on the track, clocking her worst time for 10 years in a 400m race last year.
