Jones' steroid case will affect all athletes
By Michael A. Hiltzik and Lance Pugmire, Los Angeles Times Staff Writers
Marion Jones' admission of steroid use Friday in a New York courtroom tarnishes more than her own reputation: It stains every elite athlete, even those who have never been accused of doping.
That's the conclusion of many in the athletic and anti-doping communities trying to come to grips with the confession of drug use by one of the highest-profile competitors in sports.
"Her sins will be felt by all athletes," said Michael Straubel, a defense attorney for athletes in doping cases and director of the sports law clinic at Valparaiso University School of Law.
