    I wonder how she did this. Shipped them to the IOC? The article doesn't say.

      well

      from a financial point of view, a very dumb move

      claim she lost them now & "find" them a few years later & sell 'em on ebay for a some $100,000s

      it'd be nice to hear lawdude's opinion if IOC couda sued her for this

          As I've said many times in many contexts, anyone can sue anyone for anything.

          Now let's get to reality. They could sue her and immediately give her a problem. If she says she doesn't have them, she'll have to come up with a plausible reason why. One doesn't normally misplace five Olympic medals. Whatever the reason she offers, it impairs her ability to sell them on ebay at some future point. And if those things ever did surface on ebay, the IOC's law dudes could jump in then. That's not a good option for her.

          If she says she has them but refuses to give them back, she'll have to spend money that she doesn't have defending a lawsuit that she's very unlkely to win.

          All things considered, I'm not surprised she's giving them back, assuming that story is true.

            Marion's Medals

            They were in O.J's Vegas hotel room.

                you can lose even your most valuable possesions & perhaps find them later - why can't she ?

                my most treasured sporting possessions are 4 or 5 ticket-stubs to the fnals of the athens games

                i intended to put them in a scrap-book soon after returning home ( along with stubs to a heavyweight championship ( oliver mccall flattening lennox in 2 rounds back in '94 ), cricket world cup of '83, tiger playing in london, etc ) but unfortunately during a house clear-up before doing that, they disappeared & 3y later, to my great annoyance, i still can't find them

                i'm a guy who never loses anything - i've never lost my house keys/wallet/mobile phone/credit card/etc in all my life, so i can't understand how these disappeared

                if these treasured possessions of mine have been lost, & i'm meticulous about these things, i see no reason why marion coudn't have lost her medals

                  She can keep the medals as far as im concerned. I want her to return the truth, the whole truth and nothin but the truth. Wouldnt that be like really cool n' stuff.

                      an interesting situation wouda been if she'd sold her medals a long time ago, say before balco erupted, say ~'02 for a princessly sum

                      if the new owner is an avid collecter of such & has no intention of selling them back to marion ( she may not be able to buy them back ) after 5y, nor anyone else, i wonder how strong the IOC's case woud be to get them from him ?

                        She could donate them to a movie company's prop department. That way if they got chewed up like AOs it really wouldn't matter and would be a fitting end to them. Destroyed while creating fiction.

                          Didn't John Lennon write a song about something like that?
                          Take good care of yourself.

                              Wrong Lennon song. I think Mennie was talking about 'Gimme Some Truth' - same album, different tone, both great songs . . . .
