Disgraced former American Olympian Marion Jones on Saturday made her debut as a professional basketball player in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She played less than four minutes for Tulsa Shock in their Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) match against Minnesota Lynx.

Tulsa lost 80-74 for Minnesota. Jones, who won a national women’s championship for North Carolina in college, returned to basketball after more than a decade. In between, she was stripped of her five Olympic medals — including three gold — and served time in prison for lying to federal investigators.
