The lawyer for triple Olympic champion Marion Jones has challenged the indicted head of the BALCO laboratory to take a lie detector test after he alleged he had seen her taking performance-enhancing drugs.
The challenge comes a day after Jones sued Victor Conte $25 million for defamation, saying he had falsely accused her of doping.
"Today we challenge Mr Conte to take and make public a lie detector examination from a qualified, well-respected polygrapher," Jones's attorney Rich Nichols said in a statement.
"Marion Jones took, passed and made public a lie detector test, which confirmed what she has said publicly, what her then coach has reportedly said and what her doctor reported -- she has never, ever used performance enhancing drugs."
You're better off flipping a coin to see if a person is lying. Lie detectors are a big fraud that do not work at all.
