Medals reallocation

THE reallocation of US sprinter Marion Jones' five medals from the Sydney 2000 Olympics will be speeded up to put an end to the case that has dragged on for years, the IOC said yesterday. Jones was stripped of the 100, 200 and 4x400 metres relay gold medals and her long jump and 4x100 bronzes in 2007 after she admitted to doping but so far none of the other athletes in those events have been upgraded. An appeal by several of Jones' relay teammates, who were stripped of their medals because of her doping, was still pending at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
