Where Your Dreams Become Reality

April 1, 2004
Quote of the Day:

"The damage that Suzy (Favor Hamilton) has inflicted on me is astronomical.  I mean with the positive test, my reputation is now ruined. Everyone now believes that my entire career is a fraud - that I've accomplished absolutely nothing without cheating.  Put yourself in my shoes for a moment and just think about how much it sucks to wake up every morning and realize that you were forced to steal and cheat your way to the top.  My entire adult existence was focused on my running and now everyone realizes that I accomplished absolutely nothing without cheating. If I actually had a conscience, it would be hard to tolerate."
-Disgraced US middle distance runner
Regina Jacobs, commenting after filing a $1 million dollar lawsuit against Suzy Favor Hamilton in the Superior Court of California's Oakland branch. In the suit, Jacobs claims Favor Hamilton has ruined her life by forcing her to get on illegal drugs.
