Track Beauty of the Week: Lolo Jones
June 14, 2010Posted by on
Lolo Jones is this weeks track beauty!
Lolo has both the looks and the killer speed. She has had her fair share of life’s down moments (Lolo once lived in a church basement). Jones lived with four different families in high school and juggled school with track training and part-time work.
Even at the pinnacle of sprint hurdling, disappointment reared its ugly head once again. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Jones badly clipped a hurdle coming into the last few meters of the 100m hurdles final, causing her to drop from first to seventh place – losing the Olympic gold.
After the botched Olympic final, she faced the post-race cameras like a true professional athlete. Afterwards, shots of a despondent Jones crying her heart out were shown on air. She bounced back two years later, topping the 2010 Doha World Indoor Championships in stellar fashion.
Jones is one of the most colorful figures in the athletics scene, with her witty tweets passionate demeanor on the track. She exudes so much energy that its infectious, endearing herself to the fans.
