Lolo Jones to become bobsledder

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.

Olympian signs contract with New England Patriots

Jeff Demps won a Silver medal at the London Games and will now try and win a Super Bowl as he just signed with the New England Patriots. Demps had a successful football career at the University in Florida, but the 5’7″ runningback chose to focus on Olympic trials instead of entering the NFL Draft.

Demps represented Team USA in London when he was added to the men’s relay pool after Mike Rodgers suffered a stress fracture. Demps helped Team USA win Silver in the men’s 4X100 relay.

Demp’s silver medal and 2,470 career yards rushing and 23 touchdowns at University of Florida, caught the attention of NFL scouts. Demp’s agent Daniel Rose said: ”The NFL is about speed and there’s so much you can do with a guy like that if used correctly. He could be a kick returner, slot receiver, stuff like that. There’s gadget plays teams can come up with. If used correctly, he could definitely be a weapon.”
