2004 gold-medal relay team member admits to doping

A member of the United States 4x400-meter gold-medal relay team at the Athens Olympics has accepted a four-year suspension and disqualfication of her results for doping.
Crystal Cox, who ran in the preliminaries for the team led by Sanya Richards, admitted to using anabolic steroids and agreed to the penalty on Friday, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said.
She almost certainly will have her gold medal stripped, while the consequences for her teammates aren't yet known.
