LaTasha Colander-Clark, 2000 Sydney Olympic Games gold medal relay sprinter and then teammate of Marion Jones, was quoted in the Apr. 18, 2008 ESPN online sports article "Marion Jones' Relay Teammates Not About to Surrender Medals," as having stated:

“I don’t want [this to be] about Marion…I want people to know there are still innocent athletes out there today. It’s a part of my destiny…

We’re fighting for our legacy. We’re fighting to be remembered. We trained and we busted our butts and we did good. We did it the way it should be done.

We still should be remembered as champions.”
