Marion Jones Returns Five Olympic Medals
"She has returned the medals," attorney Henry DePippo said Monday. "She's not going to comment on the matter while it's pending in court but the medals were returned today."
The track star admitted in federal court Friday that she took a steroid known as "the clear" before, during and after the Sydney games. She also pleaded guilty to two counts of obstruction of justice.
"I want you to know that I have been dishonest and you have the right to be angry with me. I have let (my family) down, I have let my country down and I have let myself down," a tearful Jones said after the court session.
The admission came after years of angry denials she had used steroids.
Jones won three gold medals and two bronze medals during the Sydney games. Two of the medals – one gold and one bronze – she won as part of a four-woman relay team.
A source close to Jones told PEOPLE she was extremely concerned about what will happen to the medals given to the other members of those relay teams.
"She deeply regrets any impact this may have on her former teammates and offers her sincere heartfelt apology to all of them," the source said.
