Marion Jones: Usain Bolt could be best ever
Jones said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that as long as Bolt's career isn't derailed by injury, "he certainly would be considered the greatest track and field athlete ever."
Jones points out that Bolt is only 25 and still can accomplish more, even after joining American Carl Lewis as the only two-time winners of the Olympic 100-meter dash. Jones says she thinks Bolt will probably win the 200 Thursday night and may set a world record.
In 2000, Jones became the first woman to win five medals at an Olympics. Her participation was stripped after she acknowledged using performance-enhancing drugs.
