Olympians Who Went to Court

Tim Montgomery

In 2002, Montgomery was the world's fastest man, dating Marion Jones and was an Olympic gold medalist with the United States 4x100-meter relay team at the 2000 Sydney Games. The Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative scandal exposed his doping and subsequently led to his 9.78 seconds record time being dropped from the books.

Montgomery was later sentenced to almost 10 years jail time for his part in a $5 million check-fraud conspiracy — which also ensnared Jones and his former coach Steve Riddick, a relay gold medalist at the 1976 Montreal Games — and a conviction for dealing heroin in Virginia.
