Talented as they are rich and famous, professional athletes seem to have it all. However, beyond their tireless hours of perfecting their craft, athletes are only human - prone to making mistakes and getting caught up in career-ending controversies. These athletes came under fire for their irresponsibility, allegations, and crimes and have never been able to rebuild their reputations since!
15. Marion Jones
Once reigning as one of America’s fastest female sprinters, Marion Jones walked away with five Olympic medals in 2000. After testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, Jones was stripped of each of her five medals and four medals she won in 2001. She also spent time in jail because of her involvement in a check fraud case.
