image for Marion Jones Gives Back Medals
Olympic Medals

Marion Jones has given up the five medals she won at the Sydney Olympics, days after admitting she used performance-enhancing drugs. What happens next is up to the International Olympic Committee.

The standings normally would be readjusted, with the second-place finisher moving up to gold, third to silver and fourth to bronze. Unfortunately it is at this point where the water becomes muddy.

There are a number of people claiming the Bronze medal and it is very difficult to see who has the most right to it. To quote Peter Uberroth, Olympic guru, "Nobody ever remembers who finished second and now we are supposed to find the fourth place finisher? Give us a break for chrissakes".

However, there is one person with a genuinely good claim, namely, MOSES. There is a very clear record that states beyond a shadow of doubt that Moses came fourth.

According to his press agent Moses is very excited. "It's like I've been wandering around in the wilderness forever", he is quoted as saying.
