Marion Jones for AOL

Got a call to photograph former track star Marion Jones as she works towards a WNBA tryout next year. After a six-month prison sentence for lying to federal investigators about her steroid use and the birth of her third child, Jones started training in September for her comeback as a professional athlete.

I was impressed by her candor with reporters and how articulate she was about her fall and potential rise. You can read Kevin Blackistone's column for AOL FanHouse here.
