BEIJING - AUGUST 20: Lolo Jones of the United States poses in the NBC Today Show Studio after losing the Women's 100m Hurdles event from hitting a hurdle at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on August 20, 2008 in Beijing, China. (Photo by Kristian Dowling/Getty Images)

Is Lolo Jones making the transition to Winter Olympics? Jones competed in the women’s US bobsled push championships. Joining Jones were fellow Olympic runners Hyleas Fountain and Tianna Madison.  The women were invited by US bobsled coach Todd Hays in an effort to “share their Olympics experiences with our athletes and to help boost team morale.”

The woman’s two-man bobsled team won bronze at the Vancouver Olympics, a feat Jones never accomplished in her two Lympic Games. Despite being the favorite in Beijing 2008, Jones hit 9/10 hurdle in the 100-M hurdles and finished fourth in London. At the bobsled push championship, Jones finished seventh.
