Lolo Jones back in bobsledding, seeks elusive Olympic medal

Lolo Jones hasn’t returned to China since 2008, since one bad step in what was then the biggest race of her life cost her an Olympic gold medal. She’s never wanted to go back. Her stance might change in 2022. Jones is the longtime U.S. hurdles star who decided to add sliding to her resume a few years ago. Now she is back with USA Bobsled, making this season’s 10-woman national team as a push athlete. That puts her squarely in the mix for the next Olympics, which just happen to be in Beijing, the city where that misstep in the 100-meter hurdle final happened 12 years ago.
