Lolo Jones to Compete in Sochi Olympics on Bobsled Team

Lolo Jones and Lauryn Williams have won the coveted spots on the U.S. bobsled team and will compete in February’s Sochi Olympics. Both are now positioned to join a group of eight other Americans who have competed in both the Summer and Winter Games. Williams is a three-time summer Olympian who helped the U.S. win a gold medal in the 400-meter relay at the London Games per NY Daily. Lolo Jones is a two-time veteran of the summer games in the 100-meter hurdles, losing the gold in Beijing due to a late stumble.

Lolo Jones is in her second season of bobsledding. The two will join Aja Evans, another Winter Olympic first-timer, as they join fellow athletes in Sochi, along with drivers Jaime Greubel, Elana Meyers, and Jazmine Fenlator.U.S. officials announced the decisions Sunday night.

“This is the deepest field of push athletes we’ve ever had,” said Darrin Steele, the CEO of the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation. “We knew heading into the season that the Olympic selection was going to be extremely difficult. It’s a good problem to have, but it meant that some outstanding athletes would not make the Olympic team.”

The U.S. had five women who became shoe-in finalists for the three push spots. Evans was widely considered to join after a series of strong performances, both on and off the track.

Williams was part of the four World Cup races this season, taking home two silvers earlier in the campaign and then teaming with Greubel for a gold medal on Sunday that helped spruce up her resume.

“I had no idea what was in store for me this season,” Williams said. “I just wanted to come in with positive energy and help out. This is the first time I’ve been a part of a true team sport, and there’s someone else counting on you. You can’t let that person down, and that’s what drives me. It’s very important to give everything I have whenever I’m on that start line.”
