“Everyone loses. Everyone comes up short. Winners are talented but most winners are just losers that never gave up.” –Lolo Jones
You might remember Lolo Jones from her track and field career where she ran hurdles for the USA Olympic team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. After a disappointing 2008 Olympic campaign where she failed to medal, she traded in her running shoes for a crash helmet and took up bobsledding. In October 2012, Jones joined the US National team as a brakewoman where she’s been competing ever since. Fast forward to this past weekend where Lolo finally won a world title in the sport alongside her seasoned teammate Kallie Humphries who has a record breaking four world titles under her belt. Congratulations to Lolo and Kallie for doing the Stars and Stripes proud. Well done!
