The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled in favor of Marion Jones teammates from the Sydney Olympics, giving them back the gold medals that were stripped after she admitted that she used performance-enhancing drugs during their wins.

Jearl Miles-Clark, Monique Hennagan, LaTasha Colander Clark and Andrea Anderson will get their 4x400 relay gold medals, while Chryste Gaines, Torri Edwards and Passion Richardson will get bronze for the 4x100.

According to the CAS, the International Olympic Committee's rules in 2000 did not require teammates' medals to be stripped when one athlete was found guilty of doping.

Marion Jones went from Olympic darling, winning five medals in 2000, to jailbird by 2008, after she was convicted of perjury in the BALCO steroid case. This winning-losing-winning medals streak puts a weird ending on a sad chapter of U.S. track and field history
