After hitting a hurdle and missing out on a gold medal in Beijing back in 2008, Lolo Jones came up empty again four years later at the 2012 London Olympics. At that point, Jones decided to give up her track and field career – but not her Olympic dream.
Jones took up bobsleigh and she’s earned a spot on the U.S. women’s team for Sochi. Another former track star, Lauryn Williams, also made the squad and the two women will become just the 9th and 10th Americans to compete at both the Summer and Winter Games.
