Lolo Jones Tries Out for Bobsled Team

And it looks like the hurdler might qualify

After being invited to a U.S. bobsled competition last month to “help boost team morale,” two-time Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones might actually make the team. On the opening night of the U.S. team-selection trials last Saturday, Jones, who is trying out as a push athlete, and her pilot Jazmine Fenlator finished in second place with a time of 1:57.01, only 0.05 seconds behind first. "I'm just trying to take it all in," Jones said of her competitive bobsled debut. "It's a new sport for me and there's a ton of room for improvement.” The next day of competition is this Friday, and the announcement of the national team will follow soon after.
