There will be no gold-medal winner in the women's 100 meters at the 2000 Sydney Games.
The International Olympic Committee yesterday reallocated two individual medals stripped from Marion Jones for doping, but in an unprecedented move withheld her 100-meter prize from Greek sprinter Katerina Thanou because of her "disgraceful" behavior in evading drug tests at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
The decision means the first two runners across the line in Sydney have both been denied the winner's medal for doping violations, and the gold in sprinting's marquee event will remain without an owner - believed to be a first in the 113-year history of the modern Olympics.
The IOC executive board awarded Jones' gold in the 200 meters (Pauline Davis-Thompson, of the Bahamas) and bronze in the long jump (Russia's Tatyana Kotovato) the next place finishers.
