Disgraced American Olympic sprinter Marion Jones has made the final cut and will suit up for WNBA basketball side, the Tulsa Shock.

Jones is best known for her track success at the 2000 Sydney Olympics before she had her five medals taken away for using steroids.

She won a national college basketball championship in 1994 as the point guard for North Carolina women's team and will be the oldest rookie in the league at 34 years of age.
