This chapter explores the female track and field athlete Marion Jones’ fall from grace. Once seen as the country’s dream girl, Marion Jones’ involvement with performance-enhancing drugs caused her to lose her reputation as an athlete. It notes that Marion Jones’ fall also was a milestone for all female athletes: her fall from grace was taken equally without aggravation or mitigation for being a woman.
