LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- American sprinters who were stripped of their 2000 Olympics relay medals because teammate Marion Jones was doping have won an appeal to have them restored.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled in favor of the women, saying that rules in place at that time did not allow entire teams to be disqualified because of doping by one athlete.
Jearl Miles-Clark, Monique Hennagan, LaTasha Colander Clark and Andrea Anderson were part of the squad that won gold in the 4x400 relay in Sydney. Chryste Gaines, Torri Edwards, Nanceen Perry and Passion Richardson were on the 4x100 bronze medal squad.
All but Perry joined the appeal.
In 2007, Jones admitted she was doping in Sydney and also lost her individual golds in the 100 and 200 meters and bronze in the long jump.
