athletics: I'll give hubby a high five.
The American is aiming to rewrite the record books in Sydney but Hunter has been forced to pull out of his own quest for shot putt gold because of a knee injury.
Jones is chasing glory in the 100m, 200m, long jump, 4x100m and 4x400m relays - a feat no other athlete has ever even attempted.
She said: "I'm upset for CJ but he's tough enough to get through it and he knows I'll be doing it for him.
"If I win five then I'll definitely be giving him at least one. Everything I do is dedicated to him now."
Jones' remarkable bid would better even Carl Lewis, Jesse Owens and Dutchwoman Fanny Blankers-Koen who all won four golds.
Organisers are doing all they can to help her achieve her record-breaking feat. The track timetable has been written to suit her and broadcasting giant NBC has also scheduled its coverage around her appearances.
