Cool Runnings! Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones cannot wait another four years for a shot at an Olympic medal. And since it has come to her attention that there is another type of Olympics that occurs in the cold, she’s going to give that a try. Yep, Lolo Jones is trying out for the U.S. bobseld team.
That’s her pictured competing in the U.S. women’s bobsled push championships today in Lake Placid, N.Y. Boblsed coach Todd Hays said he invited three members of U.S. women’s Olympic track team, Hyleas Fountain, Tianna Madison and Jones, to compete so they could “share their Olympics experiences with our athletes and to help boost team morale.” Jones finished tied for seventh at 10.11.
Aja Evans was first in the women’s push-athlete competition at 9.65.
