She was aiming for five gold medals at Sydney. In the sprints she was further ahead of the field than anyone dared believe, but her technique let her down in the long jump. On the final day, it was technique yet again that left her with only bronze, when her teammates proved far worse at the relays than the Jamaicans and Bahamians. Jones made up for it in the 4x400 metres though, when it was her third leg that laid the foundation for an emphatic win. After confessing to taking illegal substances, the IOC stripped her of all titles and performances in December 2007
