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.
The Olympic runner who made headlines for her decision to remain a virgin until marriage is dating one of the NFL’s biggest bad boys. According to MediaTakeOut.com, Jones was a personal guest of the Detroit Lions defensive tackle in the Lions’ home opener. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “Lolo and [Ndamukong] have been kicking it for a while, and they are serious. [Ndamukong Suh] is very religious too, and respectful. They make a great couple.”
Before the Olympics, Jones was outspoken for her crush on Tim Tebow, telling Leno: “I’m pretty sure I’m just going to invite Tebow to church. It’s a 100% way not to get rejected.”
Update Monday, September 17: Lolo Jones tells ESPN Playbook she is NOT dating Suh. “We are not currently dating. However, if the Lions win the Super Bowl and he wants to use the ring to propose to me, then we’ll see.”
