Former gold-medal winner Marion Jones was cut by the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock. Jones, who won three gold medals and two bronze medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, but gave the medals back and served time in prison for lying about taking steroids.

The development isn’t a surprise, as Jones had struggled, but it is somewhat sad. With Jones trying to move on from the steroid scandal that ruined her track and field career, it could have been a somewhat feel good story to see her succeed or at least make a team.
