Lolo Jones To Join Bobsled Team? Olympic Hurdler Finishers Second At Selection Races
Feel the rhythm, fell the rhyme, come on Lolo Jones it’s bobsled time.
Lolo hasn’t earned a spot on the US Bobsled team yet but she did put in an impressive performance during team selection races this weekend.
Jones, who competed on the US Track Team during the 2012 London Olympics, is hoping to win the push-athlete spot on the Bobsled team. Jones and pilot Jazmine Fenlator finished in second place during the opening night of selection races in Lake Placid, New York.
Jones and Fenlator finished the course just .05 seconds behind Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans. Jones and Fenlator had a combined two-run time of 1 minute, 57.01 seconds.
According to NBC, this was Jones’ bobsledding debt.
Jones became famous after she said in an interview that she was still a virgin. The beautiful hurdler maintained her place in the spotlight throughout the Olympics with an amusing Twitter account where she asked Tim Tebow for a date.
After the Olympics, Jones said that she was thinking about making the switch to bobsledding.
“What’s awesome about them, they’re just super strong, tough girls. I just needed a change of scenery. I needed to just get refreshed … maybe get away from the running scene.
The Olympic hurdler had an impressive start to her bobsledding career but earning a spot could be difficult. Greubel and Evans set a track push record of 5.43 seconds.
Jones announced on Twitter that her next bobsled race will be on October 27. Do you think Lolo Jones will make the US Bobsled Team.
