Track in Sports Illustrated

Apparently I beat these guys to the punch on Marion Jones. They quote an unnamed USATF official as saying "She's done enough damage".

They also have a "Where are they now?" article on Carl Lewis' acting "career". I thought they left the comedy to Steve Rushin and Rick Reilly. On the upside, they finally get Lewis to admit something I'd never seen before: he thought he deserved to be on the 1996 Olympic 4x100 relay team. At the time he merely said that if it were offered to him he'd take it, while others said he was actively campaigning for it.

They also have an accompanying "Where will they be?" article, which among other athletes profiles Long Beach's super-hurdler Ebony Collins.
