See how She Runs: Marion Jones & the Making of a Champion
She has been called "the next great sports superstar". Marion Jones is the fastest woman in the world, but where did she come from and where is she going? Here is a remarkable profile of a woman not at the end of her athletic career, but at the beginning. It's the story of a season at the highest level of sport, and of Jones's quest to win four gold medals at the 1999 World Championships, gateway to the 2000 Olympics. Rapoport follows Jones during the 1999 outdoor track season, and artfully presents the story of this world-class athlete whose quest began as a young girl's dream.
