After 3 Weeks of Practice, Lolo Jones Makes U.S. Bobsled Team

By / 10.25.12

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.
