Is Lolo Jones making the transition to Winter Olympics? Jones competed in the women’s US bobsled push championships. Joining Jones were fellow Olympic runners Hyleas Fountain and Tianna Madison. The women were invited by US bobsled coach Todd Hays in an effort to “share their Olympics experiences with our athletes and to help boost team morale.”
The woman’s two-man bobsled team won bronze at the Vancouver Olympics, a feat Jones never accomplished in her two Lympic Games. Despite being the favorite in Beijing 2008, Jones hit 9/10 hurdle in the 100-M hurdles and finished fourth in London. At the bobsled push championship, Jones finished seventh.
