HONOLULU (AP) -A delegate to the annual USA Track and Field convention has called on baseball to treat Barry Bonds as track federations treated Marion Jones: take away the records.
``Baseball's drug policy is a sham,'' said Robert Weiner, who also served as spokesman for the White House National Drug Policy Office from 1995 to 2001. ``Baseball should learn from track and field.''
Bonds has been charged with four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to a grand jury about his steroid use. Jones pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators. She has returned her Olympic gold medals, and the International Association of Athletics Federation annulled all her results dating to September 2000.
The convention delegates are meeting this week in Honolulu to establish track and field's policies for next year. Weiner leads track and field's masters program.
