His wife replied, “Some crazy woman wanting to know if the coast was clear.”
Who was the first athlete to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine?
Track star Marion Jones, in January 2001, shortly after she won five medals—three gold and two bronze—at the 2002 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Jones was stripped of those medals in December 2007 after admitting she had used performance-enhancing drugs.
