US diver Jones banned for marijuana positive test

American national team diver Harrison Jones has been suspended for one year after testing positive for marijuana.  Swimming’s world governing body FINA says Jones failed a doping control at the U.S. Winter National Championships, held in February at Iowa City, Iowa.

FINA says USA Diving imposed the ban, which took effect on April 6.  Jones, a University of Southern California student, won the 3-meter springboard title at Iowa City.  The 21-year-old native of Spring, Texas, competed in the 2008 Olympic trials but did not qualify to represent the U.S. in Beijing.
