Marion Jones' medals center stage at IOC meeting

The fall from grace of sprinter Marion Jones will be complete this week when the International Olympic Committee's executive board erases from the record books the five medals she won at the Olympics in 2000. Jones, once a dominant force in her sport, admitted recently to taking banned substances prior to the Sydney Games, has returned her medals and now faces potential jail time for lying to federal agents.
