Marion Jones 5th in Olympic Lead Up

Recent Drug scandals may be taking their toll on Marion Jones in the lead up to US Olympic trials in July as she finished fifth in a recent 100m race.

'Jones finished fifth behind winner Inger Miller in the women's 100 meters at the Prefontaine Classic track and field meet on Saturday, but consoled herself with a win in the long jump.

"It kind of balanced out the day," she said.

Jones' long-jump mark in the meet's final event was 22 feet, 9 inches - 8 1/2 inches farther than her previous best this season.

The 100-meter effort, though, was anything but encouraging for her final race before the U.S. Olympic trials, which begin July 9 in Sacramento.
