Marion Jones was raised by George and Marion Jones; as her mother was from Belize, she has dual citizenship. She showed interests in sports while she was attending high school, where she excelled in basketball and on the track, after which she enrolled at the University of North Carolina, from which she graduated with a degree in 1997.
Marion began her professional career while still at the University, competing at the 1997 World Championship held in Athens, winning her first gold medal in 100m and her second gold medal in the 4x 100m relay. Her net worth was established. The following year, she participated in the Goodwill Games, where she won gold medals in 100m and 200m, and in the same year, she competed in Continental Cup held in Johannesburg, again winning gold medals in 100m and 200m. In 1999, Jones celebrated a gold medal won in 100m in Seville, where the World Championships were held. Marion also participated in the long jump, winning the bronze medal.
She then began to train for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, stating that she would win all five golden medals. Jones actually won three gold medals and bronze in the long jump and 4×100 relay, however, seven year later, she made a confession in her book that she took illegal substance which would improve her results, and consequently Jones results in the Olympic Games were annulled. After the games, she also participated in the World Championship in Edmonton, Canada and the World Cup held in Madrid, Spain in 2002, but those results were also annulled. In 2004, she tried to qualify for the Olympic Games in Athens, but failed.
Since then, she never managed to return to her old level of performance, and in 2006, she was accused of check fraud, as she was also in a terrible financial state. As a result, Marion was sentenced to six months jail.
After she was released, Marion didn’t appear in public for several years, but in 2010, returned to sport, this time as a basketball player. She signed a contract with the WNBA team Tulsa Shock, which also added to her net worth. Jones played 47 games overall for the team, before she was waived on the 21st July 2011.
When it comes to her personal life, Marion Jones has been married twice. Her first husband was her college coach C.J. Hunter(m. 1998), and they divorced in 2002 after numerous drug-use allegations against both, proven against C.J. Five years later she married Obadele Thompson, and they have together two children. Marion also has a son with her ex-boyfriend Tim Montgomery.
