Disgraced Olympic gold medalist Tim Montgomery was sentenced to 46 months yesterday for his part in a check-fraud scam, the Washington Post reports. Montgomery, who still faces heroin-dealing charges, once held the 100m world record but was stripped of it for doping. He has a son with Marion Jones, who is in prison for lying about doping and about her part in the scam.
"I've had everything I ever wanted in life. I've stood on the top of the mountain," Montgomery told the court. "The gold medal, all those people cheering, that was part of another world. In jail, my status is gone."
