Lolo Jones refuses to go quietly into the night. The Olympic hurdler is taking a page out of the “Cool Runnings” screenplay and will use her gorgeous gams to push a bobsled.
Jones made the U.S. bobsled team essentially three weeks after trying the sport for the first time.
Jones is one of six women selected as push athletes for the team, a group that also includes Olympic sprinting gold medalist Tianna Madison. The team was revealed in Lake Placid, N.Y., on Thursday morning.
Jones and Madison were among a small number of track athletes invited to Lake Placid for bobsled's push championships earlier this month. Now they're in the mix for a shot at the 2014 Sochi Games.
You know it’s a real sport because a person can become world-class in 21 days. A lot of nuance to master there.
Yet another proud chapter in the rich history of the Winter Olympics.
