Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel: Interviews imprisoned OLYMPIC sprinter Tim Montgomery tonight on HBO

When the checks stop rolling in I guess the truth comes out of people.  Check your local listing for times but this will be on HBO, tonight :)

More about the episode called Come Clean:

In a REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated exclusive, host Bryant Gumbel goes behind prison walls for a one-on-one interview with former sprinter Tim Montgomery. At one point, he was on top of the track and field world. In addition to being the fastest man on the planet, having set the 100m world record in 2002, Montgomery was also an Olympic relay gold medalist and was involved with Marion Jones, the fastest woman on the planet. Today he is serving an eight-and-a-half year federal prison sentence for bank fraud and dealing heroin. Montgomery sits down with Gumbel to come clean about his life before athletic fame and the steep decline from world record-holder to convicted felon.
I guess the question of the moment is, how do you go from a Olympic athlete to a convicted felon in 2.2seconds?  Listen to Tim Montgomery's story and you will learn how.
