Lolo Jones Named To U.S. Bobsled Team For Sochi Winter Olympics

Lolo JonesTrack athlete Lolo Jones is in some pretty elite company — she’s just the ninth American athlete to be named to both Summer and Winter Olympic Games.

On Sunday, Jones was named one of three pushers for the U.S. women’s bobsled team headed to Sochi in February, according to Yahoo! Sports. Jones is a second-year member of the U.S. national bobsled team, following an eight-year professional track and field career during which she made appearances in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics. Jones finished fourth in the 110-meter hurdles at the 2012 London Olympics.

Jones was named to the U.S. bobsled Olympic team after she and pilot Jazmine Fenlator finished seventh at the final bobsled World Cup event Sunday. In December, Jones and Fenlator took silver at the World Cup event in Park City, Utah.
