(Newser) – Disgraced sprinter Marion Jones will have her results in races dating back to September 2000 wiped from the record books, reports the AP, under orders from track and field's world governing body. She's also been ordered to give back $700,000 in prize money. The IAAF council decided to retroactively disqualify Jones from all competitions in the last seven years.

Jones has already resigned from the sport and returned her medals from the Sydney Olympics, after admitting taking the banned steroid known as "the clear." There's a chance other athletes—if they're actually clean themselves—could now move up in the record books and get some of the prize money she's expected to return, but they could face a long wait: Jones is said to be broke.
